Each masculine piece is made one-at-a-time by hand, and there is a lifetime guarantee on every product. Many of the pieces are made domestically, but most of the products are created in Leon, Mexico. Rogers says, “Leon is the leather capital of the world and provides the best consistent quality. All of our bags have a great weathered look. Our motto is ‘Leave a Legacy.’ The day your bag looks the worst is the day you receive it. We used ours this past hunting season and after over fifty days in the field, they look incredible.”
Wren & Ivy has an array of Father’s Day gifts. “We have everything from a sleep bag to a Gentleman’s Grooming Kit. All of our products were designed by a man and made with masculine materials – wax canvas and bridle leather. If you want to personalize your gift, embossing is included in all of our products! It’s nice to personalize a gift for your husband or father. It really makes it special for them,” says Rogers.
All Wren & Ivy products are sold direct to the consumer. You can purchase through the website here, or visit Persnickety in Madison. The logo behind Wren & Ivy also has a wonderful family story. Rogers smiles, “I designed the logo with an artist friend from Vermont. My three-year-old daughter is Wren and my one-year-old son is named Ivy. In the middle of the logo is the Wren, representing my beautiful daughter, and she is surround and protected by her brother, Ivy. She is resting on three petals, representing the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.”
Rogers adds, “I would never presume my children will take over the company one day. But, I wanted them to know that everything my wife, Kim, and I do is certainly for them and with them in mind.” He smiles, “Wren loves to walk in, point to the logo and say, ‘That’s me!’”
