My bucket list includes spending an entire year in beautiful Cotswold. With that not happening, next best thing is to write a story about a Cotswold-based luxury brand Hyde and Hare. Their collection is full of unique one-off bags and accessories – all made from best quality, ethically sourced hides. The company is founded by Cotswold-native Piers Dickerson, who for a while spent time in Kenya managing luxury safari lodges.
The idea to launch a luxury accessory line was born after seeing stunning Kenyan cowhide products sold in the small boutique shop at one of the lodges and Piers chatting to a fashion designer guest at the lodge. The collection consists of pieces for every fashionista in various styles for every occasion – from all day shoulder bags to evening clutches to weekend travel bags. Every one of their creations is handcrafted in England from the finest hand selected cowhide from the Cotswold region.
High-end label’s first collection named, the Debut Collection includes The Foxley Handbag, The Arundell Clutch, The Buckleigh Oversized Clutch and The Arlingham Overnight Bag. Their signature finishes consist of a handmade suede tassel and the signature Hyde and Hare silver lozenge.
Hide and Hare plans to bring the horsey/outdoorsy collection to the US and to other fashionable markets soon. In the meantime take a look at few pieces of the handmade beautiful collection below.
