Ian's fascination with and love for timeless leather accessories led to connections with artisans and tanneries all over the world. Watson solely partners with independent artisan groups skilled in crafting leather goods using traditional techniques; cutting, skiving, edge painting & creasing, and saddle stitching each piece entirely by hand. Watson also focuses on partnering with artisan groups belonging to underrepresented demographics within the fashion industry. The resulting collaboration is a line of leather goods comprised of the highest quality materials, made by world-class artisans, and inspired by minimalism with a nod to architecture.
