What Makes us Unique?

We design and create what we want for ourselves — exceptional, hand-crafted bags and accessories that will stand the test of time. We don't mass produce excessively promoted products. With uncompromising attention to detail and an obsessive commitment to quality, we offer something unique. Our bags are measured by the experience they provide. Timeless design, extraordinary craftsmanship, and everyday utility — sold direct to our customers, for a price that reflects Virgil James value.

Design Principles

We use the metaphor of art a lot. After all, every Virgil James product is one-of-a-kind. Our approach, called Engineered Luxury, is equal parts form and function, beauty and utility. We blend classically elegant, timeless style with Kaizen – the philosophy of continuous improvement. Our limited edition products, created with the best available materials, are handmade by gifted craftsmen in the USA. Every bag and accessory is meant to provide a lifetime of use.

Product Collections

Celebrating a lifetime of travel, our CityLine Collections are inevitably influenced by the people and places we've experienced. Each limited-edition Collection is designed to achieve a timeless style, yet reflect the unique spirit of memorable cities and cultures. Our obsession for exceptional quality is immediately evident in the 8 CityLine styles. Our Signature Art Collections introduce personalized, one-of-a-kind art to the world of engineered luxury. Signature Art bags are style statements that can change with a customer.

Experience Counts

Great products don't just happen. Whether it's luxury bags or electric cars, exceptional requires years and years of experience. All of our talent and resources - employees, Ambassadors, partners, and suppliers – are prepared to maintain the Virgil James standard of uncompromising quality and authentic, everyday usability. All of us work to ensure that every customer's experience exceeds their highest expectations.

Buying From Virgil James

We use and support a direct sales approach. Customers purchase our carry bags and accessories directly online or through our personal Ambassadors. Yes, eliminating the retailer saves you money, but the primary reason we do this is to ensure that each customer's experience (before, during, and after a purchase) is as good as the product. We fully guarantee your complete satisfaction with our return, buyback, and repair services.
