Moore & Giles was founded in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1933-the heart of the Great Depression. The company was originally dedicated to designing and developing the most innovative and luxurious natural leathers for the high-end hospitality, aviation and residential interior design industries. By cultivating long-term relationships with the finest artisan tanneries in the world, Moore & Giles has had the unique luxury of delivering an unparalleled array of natural leathers with the highest level of quality, originality and elegance. In January 2007, the company introduced a collection of leather bags and accessories. Designed in Virginia and handcrafted in the United States and Central America, this exquisite and ever-evolving collection is inspired by the adventurous spirit of travel.
