Inspired by the manufacturing methods and the "Woodbridge savoir-faire", in collaboration with the grandson of John Woodbridge, an English manufacturer of sporting goods from the 1930s to the 1950s, JW&S launched in 2004 its first vintage leather football and rugby reissues handcrafted respecting traditional techniques, before extending the line to other sports such as boxing, basketball or baseball. From this love for well-made things was born a range of bags with an elegant look and irreproachable quality, made in Paris according to a unique craftsmanship.

  • John Woodbridge reissues leather sports balls from old models that have been pioneered by modern sport. The footballs are inspired by the models of the first World Cups. Rugby, but also basketball, american football or handball are handcrafted to recreate the golden age of collective sports practiced in the early twentieth century.
