Our Story

Wool & Oak launched as a brand on Kickstarter in early 2016 with a spectacular debut: The World’s First Duffle Suitcase. Close to 3000 backers rooted for it to succeed. This high demand and overwhelming support validated that Wool & Oak offered a product that travelers around the world want and need.

Wool & Oak is a lifestyle brand specializing in leather travel goods. As a company born through crowdfunding, Wool & Oak thrives to deliver meaningful innovation to stagnant product categories. The brand’s design philosophy is about the marriage of classic design aesthetic with maximum functionality needed in today’s modern world.

Founded in 2015 by Johnathan Webster, in his studio apartment in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Wool & Oak separates itself from other brands by offering extremely well made products at a price point that represents aspiration- a step above fast fashion quality and a step below luxury price. Wool & Oak is also unique because the founder, Johnathan Webster, was formally trained in fashion design in Rome, Italy. This brand was founded by an actual designer.

 Thank you for your support!

The reason we exist and can create beautifully made bags is because of your support and excitement for our vision!

 

Risks and challenges

This is Wool & Oak’s second Kickstarter campaign. Our first campaign, “The World’s First Duffle Suitcase”, was wildly successful with over $550k in pledges on Kickstarter, and over $799k in pledges (to date) across all crowdfunding platforms. The Duffle Suitcase has been successfully delivered to satisfied backers in over 73 countries–and counting!

Wool & Oak has gained an extraordinary amount of knowledge from the Duffle Suitcase Kickstarter campaign, all of which is being applied to further streamlining the entire experience for backers of The DuffleBackpack.

***

Wool & Oak is led by three experienced entrepreneurs that are dedicated to making The DuffleBackpack a reality for our backers.

Johnathan, the Founder/CEO of Wool & Oak and The DuffleBackpack’s designer, is a fashion industry insider with deep connections to a network of global manufacturers and significant experience with industry supply chain and logistics management. Johnathan’s fashion industry expertise covers design, technical design, and production development (to name but a few of his talents) and he’s worked for some of the world’s foremost fashion houses such as Helmut Lang and Theory. The DuffleBackpack is–literally–a designer travel set.

Gizem is Wool & Oak's Director of Marketing. Gizem graduated from The Berlin School of Economics and Law.  With a focus on marketing, unlimited creativity, and a keen eye for details, she provides innovative ideas, creative insight, and the skills to deliver.

Ryan is Wool & Oak’s Director of Operations, and a seasoned entrepreneur with business management expertise across a diverse cross section of industries. He is responsible for ensuring our campaign’s operations run as efficiently as possible. Ryan is an engineer that’s passionate about high quality, functional product design.

We have secured our manufacturers, shippers and fulfillment centers, all of whom are waiting for us to give them the green light! All of our partners have over 5 decades of experience. Our manufacturers are professional, precise and ethical.

***
Our freight forwarders move tons of product daily and are ready for our business. We have partnered up with one of the industry's leading fulfillment center so our backers will get their DuffleBackpacks in pristine condition and on time.

***
With all of that being said, we must note that unforeseen complications do occasionally arise. Natural disasters or accidents are unavoidable. We’ve constructed our timelines with reasonable accommodations for unforeseen events, and The DuffleBackpack will be insured throughout every step of its arrival to your doorstep.

Wool & Oak has a keen understanding of the fact that delays in the fashion industry are sometimes inevitable, so our anticipated delivery dates are conservative estimates. If all runs smoothly there is a chance you will receive your bag earlier than expected!

Some international backers will be subject to local customs import duties and taxes; these backers will be responsible for for covering all of their local customs duties and taxes. Import duties and taxes are not covered by this Kickstarter campaign or by Wool & Oak.

The DuffleBackpack you are seeing on this Kickstarter is a final prototype–it is very close to the finished product! The finished product will be of even higher quality materials, so if you like what you see here then you will love what you’ll receive in person!
