For those interested in a truly unique experience, we offer a fully custom option to create your own one-of-a-kind leather briefcase, handbag, or other type of bag. You’ll work directly with Andrew, owner of Jackson Wayne, from start to finish. We’ll also assign our world class design and development team to work specifically on your custom leather bag project. Your bespoke leather bag will be made by artisans with luxury brand experience using only the finest methods and materials.
Commissioning your own bespoke leather bag is fundamentally a creative experience. We’ll help you work through the idea and concept phase to create something that is all yours. If you can dream it, we can make it. Of course, we’ll advise on best practices, engineering and other factors that may affect the bag’s performance. And if you need help with design ideas, we’re happy to provide input. But the concept is yours and we’ll bring it to life. There’s something deeply satisfying about that.
There really is no limit to how creative you can get with a project like this. Want to use a different color of leather? How about an exotic skin like American Alligator? We can do that. Interested in different hardware? Have a family heirloom fabric that you want to use as lining? We can do that. You know you need 4 pockets on the outside but not sure how? We can help with that.
We’ll even create a unique metal die to heat imprint into the leather the design of your choice. This could be a family crest, a monogram, or another design of your choosing.
Going through our bespoke experience will produce something very special, a story that you’ll tell for years to come. It will be a conversation piece, perhaps a family heirloom, something you’ll cherish for a long time. There is something very satisfying about bringing an idea to life and the tangible results of that effort. You’re really creating a work of art. We’ve had customers acquire our bags simply to display them and you may be tempted to do the same.
Your direct point of contact throughout the process will be Andrew, the owner of Jackson Wayne. Through emails, phone calls, video conferences, he’ll make sure your project is understood and implemented as you expect. He’ll bring his years of experience in design, sourcing and development to the project and make sure that things progress smoothly.
We’ll also work with our technical designer, a highly accomplished bag and accessories designer in her own right. She has designed collections for top luxury brands and celebrities and will help create a tech pack (the technical details, drawings, measurements, materials, specifications, etc.) that will be used to build your design.
Our artisans will then take that information and use it to actually cut, sew and make your bespoke leather bag to specification. These guys are masters. They can visualize the bag and bring it to life through an old school handcrafted process.
The amount of time, specialized labor, people and materials that go into a project like this is quite significant. There is no scale because this bag will not be produced again – it’s only for you. Most projects will cost $4,500 to $15,000+, depending on complexity, material selection and other variables. Exotic skins, precious metals, or other atypical requests may increase costs.
If you simply want to utilize one of our existing designs and customize it through material selection, unique stamping, and hardware, you’ll be near the lower end of the price range. Fully custom projects for complex new bags may be near the higher end of the price range. And unusual requests may go beyond that range.
Good things take time. Our process can take 3-6 months, sometimes shorter or longer depending on the complexity of the project. We’ll keep you updated regularly along the way.
If you are interested in our bespoke experience, please email us with the details of what you are interested in making. Please try to give us as much detail as possible so we can confirm feasibility. We’ll provide a price estimate for you once we have the necessary details. You can email us at: info [at] jacksonwayne.com or through our contact form here.
We look forward to hearing from you and are excited to bring your idea to life.
