Our values operating a small bag manufacture business is ensuring each product we sell is well made, built to last and works correctly. It’s a simple formula to work with. To guarantee the quality and fit is correct, there was no option but to become handmade production. 

To earn the title of“Handmade” involved creating a custom built space / workshop with specialist equipment. The use of good quality fabrics or raw/natural additional materials. Secondly to continually learning new skills and developing existing crafts. 

However, the true secret to handmade business is working with people whom really enjoy the process of making products with an obsession for perfection.

Goodstart Jones is built on a mixture of Five key ideas and principles.


Simplicity for the Practical | Less fuss more and more practical details. We like clean lines and contemporary features - we don’t over do it , instead let the details do the talking where possible. Overall we design and make the bags as simple as possible. This allows for the attention of basics to be correct  plus for easy repairs if needed can be done by owners.


Luxury of Authenticity | Can’t beat the real feeling of genuine natural materials. Combining the use of real wood with high quality materials the likes of leathers, cork, metals , wool , waxed canvas all provides a hard wearing long lasting bags with a premium feel.


Learning Never Stops | Continuous development of handmade skills. To have the title “Handmade in England”stands for quality made goods. We always aim to make our bags in England and to always aim to do our best. Like the bible says. “If you know good then do good.”  We make everything by hand with a objective of continually training and learning to improve tailoring skills.


Military Aspirations | Great source of reference when it comes to combing both the basic practicality of items being hardwearing and multifunctional. Plus the military / army and navy influence is also a great source of inspiration for the look and style which is capable of combing the bags function and materials selection together perfectly. 


Carry Yourself | It's all about YOU... Our woodsacks specifically provide the opportunity to show your own uniqueness. It's a blank canvas. We create the bags whilst you add your personality. Our carry products are designed to fit around your needs.
