The Journey of Quality Craftmanship.

When looking for the right partner for leather bags, we needed to look no further when we stumbled across ROWDY. ROWDY is a Cape Town-based leather company established in 2012. Originally built on providing beautiful and affordable leather rucksacks to local students, under the focused vision of owner Adam Young, ROWDY’s mission has evolved to make a refined range of practically designed and quality leather bags that encourage thoughtful consumption while empowering their talented machinists who hand-make each and every piece. That’s why each bag comes with the ROWDY Promise, ensuring a lifetime guarantee for the useful life of the product.

ROWDY’s range of genuine leather bags and accessories combine clean silhouettes with leather which shows its age beautifully with wear. They use premium grade, free-range and full-grain aniline and nubuck leather cowhide sourced from their specialist tannery in Namibia. Across the ROWDY range, only free-range, natural and unfinished leather is used.⁠ This means that the leather hides they use are real, beautiful and full of character, showcasing the life of the hide and highlighting the differences in colour and grain. The design engages geometric lines influenced by minimalist aesthetic principles to create investment pieces that you will cherish for years to come.. It’s the essence of what the material is all about. In fact, each product is a story sealed in time, creating a 100% unique piece for the wearer.

Each item of ROWDY is a labour of artisanal proficiency – a handmade original. We from African Rainbow Craft (ARC) like to support this idea and like to see artisans who are upskilling themselves in a sustainable way – this is part of our ethos. Please see our image video below.
