R.M. Williams introduces burnished colours to their Chinchilla's

31 Jul 2018



Inspired by the Australian landscape, R.M.Williams is  proud to Introduce two new colourways to the men’s burnishing collection; Victoria Blue and Eucalypt. 


The new colours are beautifully hand-burnished by R.M. William's expert craftsmen and women in the Adelaide workshop. Customers can put their best foot forward this season with the fashion-forward colours that are available exclusively online and selected retail stores globally.


Always looking to their backyard for inspiration, the Victoria Blue and Eucalypt burnished boots have been inspired by the colours of Australia, native flora and the striking blue hues of our oceans.


The R.M.Williams burnishing technique is an Italian inspired artisanal method, with Australian craftsmanship bringing out the richness and true characteristics of leather. First the boot upper is cut from unfinished hide; Italian dye is then applied by hand. This is followed by hours of polishing and buffing, with particular attention paid to the toe and heel. Colours are worked and re-worked to create a mesmerising tonal transition, and each one-piece-of-leather boot travels through 90 pairs of hands as it’s made. The process creates a beautiful richness and unique highs and lows on a boot.


The burnishing process creates a truly beautiful handcrafted product, with no two pairs of boots being the same. There is something special about picking out your own pair that are personal and unique to you.


As we head into Spring Summer 19, customers can add the fresh new spring colours to their wardrobe to liven up their step.
