Mission Statement

The Thomas Bates brand was founded on an unwavering commitment to capturing the spirit of the great outdoors in the artisanal quality accessories we create. We scour the globe to source the most natural and durable leathers, fabrics, and metal hardware, then hand craft each of our belts, bags and wallets here in the USA at our historic factory in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Our experienced and talented team of designers and craftsmen employ a combination of time-tested techniques and attention to detail to create heirloom-quality products that can be enjoyed for generations.
