STOP PRESS: Hidesign confirmed for SS18 show
Hidesign joins the SS18 line-up at INDX Accessories...
NEW Exhibitor: Hidesign
From its artisan roots of a 2-man workshop to a company of 3000 spread all over the world, Hidesign has stayed true to its strong heritage of craftsmanship and innovative design. Hidesign stands out for the sensuous naturalness of its high quality leathers and the smooth soft glow of its solid brass fittings in the leather goods it handcrafts.
Hidesign started in 1978, as a hobby by Dilip Kapur on his return to India after his Ph.D in International Affairs in the United States.The first Hidesign bags were different to anything being manufactured in Europe and America at that time and from humble beginnings - being sold in boutiques in San Francisco and London, the bags soon grew in popularity until the early 1990s saw their introduction to the Department Stores of London, California and Australia.
Hidesign launched its first exclusive boutique in India in 1998 and this has quickly grown to 84 exclusive stores and a distribution network in 23 countries. Today the Hidesign brand is sold in over 2000 stores across the globe.
Hidesign believes in being artisanal, with no mass production and no assembly line.
Hidesign products are all handcrafted using leathers that come from the brand's own tanneries and brass buckles that are exclusively sand casted and polished painstakingly by hand at their own brass forge.
A team of craftsmen still knot every stitch ending by hand and a team of cutters still cut leather with fine pointed knives - a skill that takes two years to master. With an average work experience at Hidesign of over 17 years, the brand has one of the most skilled teams of craftsmen in the leather goods industry in the world.
We are delighted to confirm that Hidesign will be exhibiting at the INDX Accessories SS18 show.
