*Established in 1984, The Bill Amberg Studio brings together artisans from the worlds of saddlery, case-making, bookbinding and other forms of fine leathercraft. Their work runs the gamut from bags and accessories, through to timeless bespoke furniture and interiors for high-end private residencies, commercial projects and cultural institutions around the globe making the Bill Amberg name a badge of quality and true craftsmanship. Bill’s iconic ‘Rocket Bag’ forms part of the permanent collection of London’s V&A and New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
