With help from professional tradespeople, Ross Wood developed the Trade Time Tool Bags range – leather products that directly met his customer’s needs.

Today, Trade Time Tool Bags has an extensive, high quality range of leather goods on offer. Over the years, our tool bags and accessories have become recognised for their quality craftsmanship, reasonable prices and durable construction.

Trade Time tool bags are manufactured locally in Peake, South Australia after relocating from Victor Harbour. The majority of our materials and secondary components are supplied by Australian and New Zealand companies, as we try to support local businesses when possible.

What Our Customers Say

Mate, I’ve bought a few of your things over the last few years and I can tell you now, I will never go anywhere else for my nailbags or accessories. Your stuff is, simply put, the best.

But more than that – your service, your willingness to talk through my specific requirements (and let’s face it, they’re pretty specific!) and come up with exactly what I need means that I’ll come to you for my gear every time.

In an age where mass produced tools and equipment are the norm, it’s an absolute pleasure to be able to purchase top quality, handmade gear from a real craftsman and a good bloke.

So, thanks again Ross.


Greensborough, Victoria


Ross completed his apprenticeship in saddlery and leather work over 25 years ago. In 1994, Ross started specialising in tool bags and accessories for professional tradespeople – this was due to the lack of quality leather products available within the marketplace. His goal was to design and manufacture top quality tool bags and accessories. Our tool bags and accessories are always handcrafted. No mass production. No cheap materials.


By combining quality leather with Ross’ detailed craftsmanship, you get the best of both worlds … a professional line of products that ensures long-lasting wear and all-day comfort.

The Trade Time Tool Bags product range has grown over the years to offer a high quality selection of leather tool bags and belts, work suspenders, tool holders and accessories, chisel pouches and rolls, dog collars and leads, knife pouches and phone pouches.

Whatever your trade, we are confident you will find the right product for the job.
