Hidesign sees great value in natural beauty. All products are individually handcrafted using the finest leathers, many of which are purely vegetable-tanned using natural seeds and barks in Hidesign's own tanneries. 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 the leathers and gives the leathers a tremendous strength and durability. In addition, 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 the product as well as the durability of the product. Each bag is therefore, by its nature, a limited edition.
