An exclusive agreement with the Frederic Remington Art Museum makes new limited edition art available to Remington and western art collectors, some of it in the form of genuine buffalo leather bags.
J W Hulme Company have created a unique new line of soft, supple American bison leather bags that includes a briefcase, portfolio, duffel bag, bottle guard, tote and gun case. New for 2008, each bag is unique and production is limited to 400 of each bag. This is the twelfth collection of J W Hulme Company creations which includes handbags, totes, traditional and rolling luggage, as well as a full line of briefcases and matching portfolios. The limited edition Frederic Remington line bison leather document case is 100% full grain bison leather, thus continuing Hulme's tradition of using only the finest materials that will last a lifetime. In fact, the company guarantee their products for life. The Frederic Remington line is only the latest example of innovation in bags and styling. Each bag comes with a numbered and authenticated brass plate and a Certificate of Authenticity. The J W Hulme Company uses full grain American bison leather. The reproduced 'Broncho Buster' image on each J W Hulme Company exclusive leather case has been embossed under special arrangement with both the Director and Curator of the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, New York. In addition, the Frederic Remington Art Museum has granted exclusive license for a limited edition of giclee prints available only through J W Hulme. Bronze sculpture half-size reproductions of The Rattlesnake, The Mountain Man and The Broncho Buster are also available. The J W Hulme Company's successful formula of providing their craftsmen the finest American made materials bucks the manufacturing trend of outsourcing production of such soft goods. These bags reflect the time and attention to detail as in days of yore when artisans took pride in their creations. The result is quality products worth the premium that they command. J. W. Hulme Company were founded in 1905 to make canvas tents. Seventy years later the first bag was inspired by an heirloom bag owned by the grandfather of the company's chief designer, Norton Cross. They began manufacturing a line of sporting bags sold under the Gokey and Orvis brands. In 1996 the company dedicated themselves to preserving and broadening the luggage collection by designing, producing and branding the line under the J W Hulme Company name. Products are sold through retail stores, the J W Hulme website and catalogues.
