Since 1978, Hidesign has slowly and painstakingly built its reputation around the sensuous naturalness of its high quality leathers and beautifully handcrafted bags. HIDESIGN has today grown from its artisan Indian roots to an international brand recognized for its quality, ecological values and personalized service. Hidesign’s passion to be ecologically conscious has made it a leader in the field of vegetable tanned leathers and artisan crafted solid brass buckles. For Hidesign it is an elegance that is rooted in the quality of the product and innovation of its designs.
Our contemporary designs are based on a long heritage of great Indian craftsmanship and East India Leather that is now recognized as unique. Hidesign sees great value in natural beauty. Our products are all individually handcrafted on the motto that “Human Hands have Soul”, using the finest leathers, many of which are purely vegetable-tanned using natural seeds and barks in our own tanneries to create ecologically sustainable items that are distinct and “exclusive”. 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 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.
