American Made. We wouldn't go anywhere else.

Posted Jun 29, 2014

WaterField Designs is a San Francisco original. We've designed and manufactured bags and cases right here in our backyard since 1998. 

Gary Waterfield started the company with a business philosophy that guides the company to this day:

  • Make products that you can be proud to put your name on.
  • Treat people the way you want to be treated.
  • Exercise kindness—after all, we're all human.

You won't find corporate intrigue, shareholder revolt, or venture capital drama at our humble headquarters. But you will find Gary jumping in to answer customer e-mails, sharpen the leather splitter, or fix the copy machine.

Made in USA. We wouldn't go anywhere else.
