Love Beyond The Season: A ROWDY Valentine’s Gift Guide

Ahh, the month of love. A well-intentioned time characterised by gestures of care and gratitude for those closest to you, but also a time that almost always climaxes in a cacophony of consumerist tchotchkes which, let’s face it, we don’t need and the Earth certainly could do without for the next…well…forever.  

Bags designed to be loved beyond the season

At ROWDY our brand values include thinking differently and buying better. This means that, rather than investing in fast-fashion or single-use items that have a far-reaching and long-lasting impact on the environment, we believe that there is an inherent value in purchasing one leather bag that can be treasured for years, if not decades. It is also why we have something ultra special called the ROWDY Promise - A free repairs lifetime guarantee which applies strictly to manufacturing defects, which includes stitching, zipper, and faulty fittings to move our mentality towards reusability and away from “throw away”. 

So, whether you're celebrating the month of love with your partner or your friends, why not make the moments together more memorable while embracing long-lasting love with ROWDY Bags

From our range of over 14 classic designs and 9 timeless shades, we have put together a Valentine’s Gift Guide of four handcrafted, genuine leather carry companions that you can pair with any outfit and any activity this Valentine’s month and beyond!

A whole lotta love

1. The Rucksack

Why not pair a ROWDY ramble with some good company and pack both into this hardy hiking companion?  

Sunscreen, snacks, beverages and binocs...the ROWDY Rucksack is designed to keep all your adventuring essentials secure in one stylish place so that you can enjoy the journey.

One of our bestsellers, our black cotton-lined Rucksacks with reinforced  adjustable straps for comfort come in two sizes and are complete with nifty hidden YKK zipper pockets located on the back of the rucksacks for extra security (ideal for your wallet and cellphone) and a front pouch for items that you might need quick, easy access to.

 2. The Shopper

Let the ROWDY Shopper help you plan the perfect picnic with that special someone this Valentine's. 

Set off for sundowners with a picnic blanket, bubbles and snacks all safely and sophisticatedly secured in the genuine leather Shopper complete with one inner pocket, a reinforced base, and metallic button closure. Because who says you can't picnic with a leather bag?

Add a personalised touch

Want to make your ROWDY Valentine’s gift extra special? We do personal embossing, however, it will take up to two weeks as the bag needs to be in deconstructed panel form in order to send it to the embossers. ⁠

An additional fee applies per bag for custom embossing and a quote will be provided.⁠
