I decided to start an accessories line after making a few basic totes for family members Christmas of 2012 and I have been working with leather ever since. My self named brand began in early 2013 as I cut patterns on my Bronx apartment living room floor. Since then I have shipped products around the US and to many countries while I have bounced my home studio from New York, Miami, Sonoma, and now San Francisco. The official Ian James brick and mortar store opened in May 2021 where I proudly display and continue to handcraft every piece in the collection.

At the heart of the designs are strong angular lines and my classic Double X motif that has become my signature mark across many of the products. The core mission of the brand is to create products that can withstand all aspects of life, from leisure, to business to travel, all while being effortlessly chic. Thanks to a very supportive client base, the bags continue to be a full made to order experience.
