We've been committed to making products in the USA since our start in 1998. Back then, off-shore manufacturing was the prevailing trend, and many sewing shops in San Francisco were shuttered.
We wanted hands-on experience with the products we were making — from the idea phase to final production. We wanted to ensure things were done right, make changes on the fly, and iterate on the design as needed.
Our small-batch production fits the types of products we offer — well-designed, custom-fit items you buy for life. You may have to wait a while for us to make it for you, but you know it will be well-made.
With WaterField American-made gear, you get high quality, long-lasting products. All our designs are original, incorporating details you'll appreciate with each use.
We use only premium, full-grain leather for our bags and accents. It comes from the toughest part of the hide with the tightest grain so it's extremely durable.
Full-grain leather looks better and better as it ages, and your WaterField bag will develop a beautiful patina.
The Pouch and Magnetic Case for Gameboy are designed specifically for the original 1989 Gameboy. However, this device is quite bulky and anything with identical or smaller dimensions will be accommodated in these cases.
The Gameboy Pouch and Gameboy Magnetic case both offer similar amounts of protection and mostly differ aesthetically. The Pouch is very minimalist and focuses on a lightweight construction, whereas the Magnetic Case focuses on an upscale look with its double leather panels and seamless magnetic zipper.
