In 1973, Michael Budman and Don Green founded Roots, initially a Canadian footwear company. By 1977, the company had stores across North America and Europe. It was around this time that the company started making the transition from footwear to classic handbags.
The company is also noted for outfitting the Canadian Olympics team; remember the red ‘poor boy cap’ which eventually sold over half a million caps worldwide. In addition to Canada, Roots became the official outfitter for the United States, Britain, and the Barbados Olympic teams.
In 2015 Roots was sold to an international company with plans to expand distribution worldwide. Leather goods have been at the heart of Roots right from the start and the company has always stressed quality and Canadian craftsmanship. Today, the family continues to run factory.
