The William Ross Design Process
The leather is full-grain leather - the best you can get. Full-grain leather come from the top layer of the hide. It includes all the grain with it - hence the name full-grain leather. This type of leather retains the inherent toughness, as well as the imperfections because there are no surface alternations or splitting. It is the highest quality leather, thus the most expensive. Full-grain leather develops a patina over time - a characteristic that attributes to its popularity.
No synthetic materials are used in the production of our bags. At WR, we believe in quality over quantity. Shop sustainable and say no to fast throw-away fashion that only adds to our already overflowing landfills. All of our products are environmentally-friendly, and with the right care, will last you a lifetime. Natural materials, inspired by nature.
Our Waxed Canvas
A rugged natural fabric that unlike most synthetics, will look better with time. Waxed canvas develops a patina with age, each mark a reminder of your journey. Waxed canvas radiates rugged sophistication and the natural fabric looks better with wear and time. Unlike industrial materials, waxed canvas will become part of your timeless journey; stories to be passed down and adventures embedded in the natural patina of the material. Know it, feel it, and live the difference.
