Our Stories

The R.M.Williams heritage dates back to 1932 when Reginald Murray Williams founded the company. Our story is sprawling and characterful – just like the wide, brown continent that inspired it. Reginald himself spent years inventing and perfecting new techniques that would form the basis for the entrepreneurial, driven spirit that remains at the core of the company that bears his name.

Find out more on this page about the history of R.M.Williams – the company and the man - as well as learning more about the materials and techniques that underpin our famous reputation for craftsmanship, detail, practicality and quality.
