This Cinco de Mayo we wanted to take the time to honor our incredibly talented artisans from Mexico and the beautiful products they have inspired and helped create. We are dedicated to producing the best quality leather goods. Not just in Oregon, or the United States, but in the world. And in order to do so you have to find the best artisans, makers, and tinkerers in the world.

“We align ourselves with those who share our standards of excellence, our demand for authenticity, and our exacting ethical values.” – Will Adler
We are proud to partner with artisans in Mexico where many of our factories and tanneries are located. Will's love affair with Mexico led him to design a collection inspired by the colors, textures, and passion of the people of Mexico. Our Oaxacan Collection is created using hand-loomed wool rugs which are strengthened by leather panels to ensure these one-of-a-kind works of art serve you beautifully for years to come.

We toss the phrase “one-offs” or “one-of-a-kinds” around with a lot of our products so we wanted to make sure you fully understand what it means. Collections such as the Oaxacan are considered one-of-a-kinds because legitimately the bag you’re looking at is the only one in existence. The silhouette is the same, but the wool rugs used are all hand-made and completely unique. So, when you fall in love with say the Oaxacan Tote pictured below, you’re falling in love with that specific design and color pattern.

From all the folks at Will Leather Goods, we hope you have a wonderful, and safe Cinco de Mayo. And lastly, don’t forget to show off your Will products wherever you’re celebrating tonight :)
