WHO ARE THE HIDES?

GREAT QUESTION

Launched in 2017, The Hides is an Australian owned and operated leather goods company, proudly crafting bags, smalls and footwear in our Sydney workrooms. 

WHERE ARE THE HIDES MADE?

Quality is everything to us. The Hides are beautiful products and we make them in Sydney, Australia.
By hand. Every single piece. By a very clever team of makers.

The Hides philosophy is rooted in simple, precisely focused design and quality construction, with a genuine commitment to sustainable Australian manufacturing. 

With small, exclusive production runs determined by the availability of our highly covetable, distinctive leathers, each product embraces the perfect serendipity of its hide - Pepper, Rich Blacks and Milky Whites - ensuring every piece is entirely unique.

RESPONSIBLE?

Absolutely.
We stand 100% behind the quality of our product and we are built on full transparency and a zero waste approach. We stand by our goods from origin to finished product - we make it our business to know every single detail.

The Hides offer distinctive design, principled product – and no bullshit. We work with two very reputable tanneries in New Zealand and Brazil. Our leathers are by-products of these country’s strong, established and well-regulated beef export industries. The cruelty free tanning methods we employ minimise the production of waste and volatile compounds.

Both tanneries hold Leather Working Group awards for their sustainable and responsible environmental business practices. They also conform to the ISO and REACH certifications.

We love The Hides, and we think you will too.
