Meet the people who make us special.

J.W. Hulme Co.

Every J.W. Hulme product is individually handcrafted by a skilled artisan. Every phone call and email is answered by a friendly person. From cutting leather to sewing finishing touches, from product conception to customer service, J.W. Hulme is more than a brand, it’s a family.

Handmade for you.

We have been makers since 1905, when John Willis Hulme founded our company in St. Paul, Minnesota. His original designs for turn-of-the-century outdoorsmen defined the spirit of exploration and adventure, and his legacy lives on in our handcrafted, made-in-America products that stand the test of time.

Leather that only improves with age, canvas used for Army tents during WWI, and artisans who pay attention to every detail big and small – this is what makes J.W. Hulme last. These days, our customers are just as likely to be carrying our bags to the office as they are to the outback. No matter where you take us, 100 years of craftsmanship and tradition go with you.

Learn from the best. Work with the best.

For more than 100 years, we’ve been committed to hand-making leather goods that honor our past and are designed for the future. We couldn’t do it without our team of talented, passionate individuals. Send us a note and let us know why you’d be a great fit for J.W. Hulme. We can’t wait to hear from you.
