Hidesign sees great value in natural beauty. Their 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. Their 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 their leathers and gives their leathers a tremendous strength and durability. In addition, their 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 their product as well the durability of the product. Each bag is therefore, by its nature, a limited edition.
