Taking care of your product needs in our Eugene, Oregon Workshop. We believe in a Lifetime Guarantee. A Different Way of Doing Business
When you walk into a Will Leather Goods store, the aroma of leather and oil immediately triggers your sense memory: You remember a polished saddle from your childhood; your mother’s well-worn clutch; your grandfather’s leather-bound bible; an old fashioned briefcase fastened with shiny brass rivets. You feel the leather—it is polished or it is raw, it is smooth or it is pebbled, it is supple and it is strong. Your fingers trace over an embossed corner of a wallet as you open the billfold and imagine a photo of your children peeking through the transparent panel.
This is a sensory experience, and your Will Leather Goods piece is an emotional—and practical—investment.
Your piece will be well loved, and, what’s more, it will last. It is made by the most knowledgeable craftsmen who are the best at what they do, using the highest quality materials. Every detail of its design has been considered. Every button assessed, every stitch thought through, every fabric tested and tried. Your Will Leather Goods item is built to serve you, for good.
We know this. We promise it. And, in the event that something does go wrong, we honor it: We will replace your piece without question, guaranteed.
It’s an old-school way of doing business that’s based in trust, values, mutual respect, and quality. And we’re proud to practice it.

Complete Guarantee Details
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.
Our warranty does not insure that the product will perform for the lifetime of the buyer, but for the lifetime of the product and does not cover wear and tear, misuse or accidental damage. Lifetime can be defined as the length of time that a product, through normal/expected use, can be expected to function as intended. If one of these non-warranty scenarios occurs, please Contact Us to receive a quote for non-warranty repairs.

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.
