Based out of Toronto, Canada, Roy Lee created Rugged Lot - a company built out of a desire to create products that are natural, simple, and enduring. They hand-craft products that are sourced, cut, sewn and finished by hand.
Roy chose to craft with raw natural leather because of its connection with the earth and wholesomeness. The natural veg tan leather is chosen for its ability to gain character throughout time, absorbing its surroundings to achieve a beautiful aged look that tells your story. Leather goods are long-lasting, can be passed down from generation to generation, and improve with wear.
They truly pride themselves on precision, cleanliness, and excellence at each and every step of the process.
There are no machines in the process.
