Founded in 1978 as a two man workshop, Hidesign has grown into a global brand recognized for its quality, ecological values and personalized service. By keeping its focus on a classic contemporary look, Hidesign caters to the savvy and sophisticated urban professional. The leather collection includes handbags, clutches, briefcases, laptop cases, wallets, belts and garments.
Hidesign has grown from its artisan roots to an international brand with over 60 exclusive retail stores and a distribution network across more than 20 countries. Hidesign can be found at premium international outlets, including John Lewis and House of Fraser in the UK, Myers and David Jones in Australia, Stuttafords and Edgars in South Africa, Lifestyle and Shoppers Stop in India and Parkson, Robinsons and Isetan in Southeast Asia.
Hidesign sees great value in natural beauty. Our products are all individually handcrafted using the finest leathers, many of which are purely vegetable-tanned using natural seeds and barks in our own tanneries. Our leathers are full grain and have not been corrected with paint and pigment to hide natural defects. The natural and ecological tanning process enhances the intrinsic characteristics and individuality of our leathers and gives our leathers a tremendous strength and durability.
In addition, our solid brass buckles are individually sand cast and hand polished, reflecting old saddlery traditions. The solid brass buckles and fittings enhance the natural look of our product as well the durability of the product. Each bag is therefore, by its nature, a limited edition.
Design and Collection
Hidesign has three design teams based in Milan, London and Pondicherry all tirelessly working together to create two new collections a year. In addition to our seasonal collections, we have our classic range, products that in some cases we have made for thirty years with minimal changes and which our customers continue to appreciate
