C.H. Ellis Sewn Cases are custom designed, shaped, and hand sewn to meet your needs. We don’t outsource our manufacturing to save on margins- we stick with the time-tested model of hand manufacturing the best sewn cases in the market. C.H. Ellis started out sewing saddle bags for ranchers and mail carrying bags for the postal service. We eventually landed the largest sewn goods contract with Eli Lilly, manufacturing medical bags for doctors and nurses alike for decades.

From humble beginnings, we’ve stayed true to customer value and relationships (and never requiring 100s of units per order) by focusing on customizing a sewn case solution for each customer. Our market history and supply chain allow us to bring you the material you need at a more affordable rate than our competitors–every time. We quality inspect every sewn case by hand to ensure your case is built to last, rugged, and built to stand the test of time.

As new materials enter the market, we’ve found that Cordura is still one the most universally durable fabrics. Cordura is lightweight, doesn’t act as a fire accelerant, and is engineered to last a lifetime. We haven’t jumped ship for lookalike products to save on margins or the shiniest new fabric or material to hit the market. We stick with the time-tested, best material value and dependable solutions. That separates us from others and allows us to stand confidently behind our sewn cases.

Today our sewn cases can be seen out in the field with the United States Military. We design and manufacture customized sewn cases for the test instruments, aviation, medical device, custom cabinetry, audio engineering, and payment processing markets. There’s no scenario a customized sewn solution can’t solve. We even have the capability to customize a multi-material design for you, mixing our sewn goods with hard case technology offering an even more durable option.
