The William Ross Design Process


Our Leather

The leather is full-grain leather - the best you can get. Full-grain leather comes 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.

Our Belief

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 leather messenger, satchel, and carrier bags 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.

The Look of Elegance

Ken and I take our William Ross Travel Bag with us whenever we drive more than 30 miles from home. It carries all the essentials for the day, including a file folder or two, plus numerous Ziploc's of "just-in-case" items. We love the rich feel of the materials and the understated look of elegance. In the olive and tobacco, it looks great on either one of us. You have a wonderful product, and I'm sure your grandparents would have been honored and proud.

Travel Bag Surprise

I told my husband I wanted one of these for Christmas and to surprise me with the color-I couldnt decide. He bought the Olive green and Tobacco-great choice! Outstanding quality! We both have shared this bag and are so impressed with the quality and functionality of the bag. I like the interior laptop sleeve. It holds my 12-inch laptop and the design is right on. The laptop sleeve is located on the inside of the front panel, which eliminates the bag hitting my hip while walking. My husband likes the outside front closure pocket, because its easy access unlike his previous bag. Im short and hes tall, but this bag looks great on both of us. Great design, quality, and functionality. I know what Im getting my husband for his birthday-his own bag! We love this bag and we would recommend!

Just a Great Bag

This bag is very well made. Heavy duty strap and great design. Im a fan of full-grain leather, the smell is amazing and this bag is a beauty. I purchased the charcoal and tobacco leather. I like the wax canvas and am familiar with this fabric. The necessary rain flap can get in the way at times if you need to zip in a hurry, but I think it is a very much needed element. The quality of the zipper along with the leather and material make this bag a luxury. I would recommend this bag and look forward to more purchases from this company.

5-Stars, Perfect Travel Bag!

We took a short trip to Florida to escape the cold winter we were having. This bag was the perfect bag to take. Like the description said it fit perfectly under the airplane seat sideways and still allowed me to have room for my feet. I used to always stuff a bag under the seat-usually a backpack and pull it out. I carried the bag every day-even with very little items inside. I cant believe how this bag brings together hand- crafted ruggedness and elegance. I liked the hands- free cross over strap. The leather strap is amazing! This bag will last forever! Highly recommend!

Outstanding Work Bag

I spent quite a bit of time comparing bags (function, style, quality) before committing to the purchase of this bag. Being a mom, female chemist, and head of the lab department, I find that this ever day work bag is just what I needed. I carry my Apple iPad, file folder, wallet, notes, bag of personal items, lotion, gum, sanitizing wipes, day mail, pens, earbuds, work phone, and believe it or not my thermos coffee has room to stand up in the bag along with my sweater. I needed a bag that stood up and packed well. The strap had to be a heavy duty and this bag delivers! Clever design, sturdy seams, high-degree of functionality, high quality leather and canvas material. I cant say enough about this bag, it clearly shows that it was designed by someone who actually use their products. Yes, I recommend this product.
