Our Story

John Woodbridge Makers is a piece of the old world where beauty and utility are synonymous. Great importance is given to matières premières. Each piece is handcrafted in full grain leather by skilled artisans with years of savoir-faire, and carries unique human traces.

Our Old school Sport collection is an ode to the aesthetic refinement of vintage sports objects. Amongst our offerings are boxing gloves, rugby balls, and handsome re-editions of iconic leather footballs from the nascent years of the World Cup. The masterpieces from this collection are our English Boxing objects—Hand-polished punching bags, leather gym mattresses, medicine balls, and skipping ropes finished with our signature aged leather patina— ideal for composing an elegant home gym. The Travel collection evokes seafaring English officers of the 1900s and languid journeys on the Orient Express. Sober, unencumbered, and practical yet never without poetry, our bags are infused with nostalgia but remains perfectly adapted to present day demands. Weekend bags are cabin-sized, gym bags fit perfectly into a locker, and document bags are sized for laptop computers. They are crafted using the same robust leather as our sports collection.
