PUTTING CRAFTSMANSHIP IN YOUR HANDS.

Become an honorary R.M.Williams craftsperson! Our Head of Heritage and Heartland Marketing, Terry, will host the new brand series through a range of videos taking you on a craftsmanship journey. Included in the tutorials are guides that demonstrate the skills to produce your very own quality leather goods via our limited edition ‘Maker Kits’, which you can purchase to then craft at home. Inspired by RM’s love of leatherwork, A Bushman’s Craft Maker Kits will bring that heritage to you by putting craftsmanship in your hands.

And, as we continue to work alongside the passionate craftsmanship community in Australia, we’ll build out ideas to extend the Maker Kits range in the future, as we walk together through the lessons and discoveries that are made.
