‘THE HUT’ – OUR TRAVELLING WORKSHOP
As you take your first steps in to The Hut, you will be welcomed by the earthy smells of seasoned hoop pine and newly tooled leather. It is adorned with iconic signage, old-fashioned quart pots and drovers’ mirrors, and an incredible collection of leather-workshop tools.
As you start to take in all the details of The Hut, you will experience a travelling workshop that pays tribute to our team of craftspeople that continue to sit at the heart of our heritage brand.
“We tossed around a lot of names but in the end, we decided on The Hut. It is inspired by the high-country cattleman’s huts, practical and highly functional. It also references the story of the founding of the company in 1932 by Reginald Murray Williams in his shed at 5 Percy Street in Prospect, South Australia, and of our skilled craftspeople who carry on the tradition today.” - Terry Goodear, Head of Heritage and Heartland Marketing.
