What began as a senior thesis project in 2014 quickly expanded into a small batch leather goods company operating out of a small two car garage to a small stand alone studio today. I started Brookes & Hyde with one goal in mind: create a product line that challenges the way we perceive luxury through high-end leather goods handcrafted, using time honored traditions and modern designs. I wanted to create products that enriched the lives of each person that used them.
All of our products are made from one of America's oldest and most famous tanneries, Horween Leathers. Every product is made from full grain American leather, showing the scaring and natural characteristics in each product. Their methods and products are second to none, mixing generations of experience with age old craftsmanship to deliver you the best product possible.
My vision has always been to grow a brand organically, sharing my products and dream with each person I meet. My passion is in the timeless craftsmanship of each product, enriching my skills everyday to create new and better products. I feel extremely blessed that I have been able to make a living doing what I love, and I am grateful to everyone that has supported the brand. I look forward to sharing my adventures with you on this journey as the brand continues to grow and you all become a part of the story.
