In the Embrace of Basic Goodness

In the Embrace of Basic Goodness

You might have noticed the words ‘Embrace Basic Goodness’ embossed on some of our ROWDY slings. Why is that there and what does it mean?  Basic goodness is not a ‘thing’. It is the natural state of openness that is gentle, brave, sensitive and perceptive. Although all human beings, at their core, are living expressions of basic goodness, our thoughts , words and actions often may not be. We tend to get wrapped up in the day to day going ons - the busy times and the stress make us forget that we need to look out for ourselves as...

At ROWDY, we have several items that come with a black cotton lining. These include items such as our Rucksack, our Briefcase, our Laptop Bag and our Duffel. The reason these bags come lined is to offer added protection for the items that tend to be transported inside these styles of bags - such as laptops, books and important work documents. The benefit of a lined interior is that there is no leather scuffing...

Why We Don’t Make Custom Designs

Can you make this bag for me? Could you add a pocket here or remove that there? We get asked these sorts of questions a lot, so we thought we’d make a post about it so you can better understand.  Essentially, as a factory, we have a production line where our 20 leather cutters, machinists and finishers each have an allocated task. It is a finely tuned process, with everyone an essential piece of the puzzle to reach our bag quota for the day.  In order to do a custom item, we need to pull a machinist out of our...

How To Care For Leather

Now that you have your beautiful new ROWDY bag, the next step is to make sure that you look after your bag so that it’ll stay with you for as long as possible. At ROWDY, it is in our ethos to make beautiful products that will last a lifetime. That’s why every bag we make comes with the ROWDY Promise. This means that we offer a certified lifetime guarantee on all our products, but this only applies to manufacturing defects such as loose stitches, broken zipper or faulty fittings.  Luckily, leather is a durable material that can last for decades...
