In its special Christmas supplement of November 30, 2019, French sports and lifestyle Magazine L'Équipe - the traditional Saturday weekly of famous and nationwide newspaper L'Équipe - selected a product John Woodbridge: the Tiento 1930 leather football, presented in the middle of an assortment of masculine objects and classics revisited such as a limited edition Fossil steel watch, a 12-year-old bottle of Aberlour whiskey, a Montagut cashmere turtleneck sweater or Chevignon wool lambskin bomber jacket. A section titled "La tradition a du bon" ("Tradition is good").
Vintage hand-stitched leather football inspired by the model used in the Uruguay 1930 World Cup final.
12-panel leather and lace football, the Tiento, like the T-shape, is one of the two iconic models played by the Uruguay and Argentina teams in the final of the first ever FIFA World Cup in 1930. A model handcrafted and reissued faithfully to its original design by John Woodbridge.
