WILL delivers a collection of bags, belts and leather accessories that are uniquely American. They have rugged good-looks, thoughtful functionality, and top-quality materials inherent to artisan craftsmanship. That is Will. Attention to detail is at the core of every unique Will piece. Like fine hand tools, Will Leather Goods are not only extraordinary when new, but gracefully age with the beauty and patina expected from shrunken soft lambskin and vegetable-tanned hides.
Help us help Detroiters - Join us this month and #GiveWarmth this winter through Mittens for Detroit. For all the success this city has seen in recent years, it’s still our unfortunate reality that, for thousands of our neighbors, a single pair of warm gloves to protect their hands is a luxury they cannot afford during our harsh winter season.Bring a pair (or five!) of new gloves or mittens to our December talk for extra high fives and hugs! Don’t have time to pick a pair up? You can donate here - just be sure to note CreativeMornings Detroit on your donation under “I want my donation to be dedicated:” so we can share our collective impact after the event! We believe in the power of our shared efforts and resilience - may we all make many little plans to navigate our complexity as ordinary, interested citizens and find ways to support those of our neighbors! Parking Street parking is aplenty in the early am in Midtown but Will also has a small parking lot adjacent to the side entrance. Look for the ENORMOUS wood door and head inside to their gallery space for the talk. We will, as always, have complimentary coffee and snacks for you early birds but Will also happens to have a great espresso bar if you’re in the mood for something a little fancier.
