In 1973, inspired by their passion for Ontario’s Algonquin Park, Michael Budman and Don Green created Roots. It has grown to become known as Canada’s leading lifestyle brand for its quality leather goods, comfortable fashion choices, and accessories.
Starting with a tiny store in Toronto… Roots now has more than 120 retail locations in Canada and the United States, and more than 100 in Asia. The Roots style and values are all about quality, integrity and longevity.
