Oregon-based artisanal leather goods company Will Leather Goods has opened its eighth and newest shop in Austin’s newest shopping destination, Domain Northside.
The new 2000-square-foot concept space, located at 11701 Domain Blvd., will feature and array of men’s and women’s handcrafted leather bags and accessories. The retail space was designed by founder and creative director Will Adler with the help of The Will Team, Icon Design Build, Beck Architects, and Jeffery Newberg.
In addition to leather goods, the space is filled with a collection of handcrafted furniture and an assortment of rare antiques sourced from all corners of the world. These include Oaxacan rugs placed throughout the store and original Native American canoes that have been turned into light fixtures. Every item in the store is available for purchase. The new Will Leather Goods store will also serve coffee from Eugene-based Tailored Coffee Roasters, a blend created especially for the brand.
“Inspiration is otherworldly. It hits like a bolt of lightning and manifests itself in sweat, grit, perseverance, and hard work,” said Alder. “It pushes us. It forces us to have guts even when we feel fear. To ignore inspiration is tragedy. We have to carry it with us every day, nurture it, and infuse it into everything we do.”
To mark the official grand opening of its Austin location, Will Leather Goods will make a donation of backpacks to a local school’s students as part of the company’s Give Will program, founded on the belief that every child deserves a bag to carry their dreams. Give Will is Will Leather Goods’ first social initiative, designed to support students in underfunded public elementary schools across America through in-kind backpack donations. Nominations for Austin schools are now being accepted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and the school will be chosen this August.

Our lifetime guarantee is a warranty against defects in materials (leather and hardware such as snaps, zippers, buckles, rivets, etc.) and workmanship. Our leather, as with all natural materials, will occasionally have unique characteristics such as: small scars, creases and variations in the color and are not considered defects. Validated warranty repairs are repaired or replaced at no charge.
Due to the nature of leather and vintage materials our warranty does not cover natural wear and tear from daily love. Worn edges or corners, natural fading and softening of materials is an expected occurrence. We guarantee the foundation of our product will hold your belongings safely. We find that patches and natural wear are a part of the story that unfolds as your product grows with you. One of a kind, Vintage and Found product may need to be patched or stitch due to the nature of vintage material.
Maintain your favorite leather pieces regularly to ensure soft and supple leather. Leather can be cleaned and restored with a regimen of leather care products designed to clean, condition and protect. Leather Care can help maintain your product longer. Please see our Leather Care page for more information. We recommend conditioning your leather at a minimum of every 6 months. Learn more about how to care for your leather.
If you are in a dryer (hot or cold) climate please condition your product as soon as it feels less supple, dull or faded. Vegetable tanned leather when conditioned should feel slightly oiled and look rich. Similar to the nature of skin it needs to be moisturized as soon as it feels dry. We charge $25 + shipping for conditioning or head to a store for onsite conditioning for Free and the full Will Leather Goods experience.
Product Care Information
We highly recommend using leather care treatment to maintain and preserve your leather products: Product Care
Our wax coated canvas is coated with paraffin which makes this water-resistant, but not waterproof. If your canvas product gets wet, we recommend you let it air dry thoroughly in a warm dry place. If at any time your canvas has scratches or marks, these can typically be reduced by using a hair dryer on medium heat to help the wax soften and absorb back into the canvas.
By purchasing products from Will Leather Goods you agree to the terms in our Lifetime Warranty. Will Leather Goods reserves to right to alter, edit or cancel our Lifetime Warranty without notice.

The monogram has existed since 350 B.C., but came into popularity as steam ships started to cross the Atlantic to help identify the trunks and luggage of the travelers. Today, the monogram remains a functional identifier, while also lending personal style to your leather goods.
Personalize your product or gift with a monogram in either our small 1/4" font or our large 1/2" font. We use traditional heat stamping to deboss into our vegetable tanned leather.
