OUR STORY

Welcome to Hyde & Hare - a British-born, luxury lifestyle brand offering the finest cowhide bags and accessories. What makes us special as a company is not just our impeccably stylish, beautifully designed and affordably priced products, but the fact that each of our bags is completely unique. You won’t find another one like them anywhere!

With headquarters based near Cirencester in the Cotswolds, Hyde & Hare prides itself on its commitment to innovation, design and above all, superb craftsmanship. Great thought, care and attention to detail goes into every item we make down to the smallest parts, including our signature silver Hyde & Hare Lozenge recognisable as a trademark on all our products.

OUR DEBUT COLLECTION

Exclusively designed by Hyde & Hare and proudly made in England, our debut collection features a range of luxurious bags for women perfect for every occasion.

The Foxley our sophisticated go-to shoulder bag will stylishly carry all your essentials from your laptop to an extra pair of flats. The Buckleigh is a gorgeous oversized clutch that will take you from a morning coffee all the way to a spur-of-the-moment dinner. It’s slightly smaller sister is The Arundell, a cool clutch that will add a touch of rock-chic and understated sophistication to any outfit. Finally, The Arlingham, is our sumptuous, sleek and spacious weekend travel bag that will see you through many season’s adventures – whether you’re off to Paris, The Hamptons or a romantic weekend in the country.

How It All Started

I grew up in the rolling hills of Gloucestershire, England, went to school in Cheltenham, studied in Oxford and always had a deep desire to set up my own business. I found myself fresh out of university brimming with ideas but not yet sure what to do. Turning down the opportunity of a lucrative job in the City, I was offered the chance to travel to Kenya for a number of months helping manage luxury safari lodges.

It was here in this country steeped in history and unspoiled wilderness that I discovered a range of stunning, local cowhide products sold in the small boutique shop at one of the lodges. One evening after a few delicious sun downers overlooking the Savanna, I sat chatting to a guest, an incredibly inspiring fashion designer, and that night the idea for Hyde & Hare was born.

BIG PLANS

As the Hyde & Hare brand continues to grow we will be going on tour, selling our beautiful, handcrafted products at shows and events throughout England and will be expanding our sales in the U.S. We are also planning to extend our line of products and launch an exciting new range of accessories early in 2018.

In the meantime enjoy browsing our new collection and we hope you love the bags as much as we do.

Happy shopping!
