Home grown, sustainable leather,
from Farm, to arm
Originally established in 2011 as Hayley Hanson Hide, expanding again in 2016 to for Hayley Hanson, 2019 finds us creating Hayley Hanson Country, a range of products made with our own leather, sustainable, from our own cattle, or very local, each hide, checked by Hayley. We were in something of a dilemma, we wanted to utilise as much of the leather as possible, but at an affordable price point, we searched for a suitable material, Hayley always had in her mind Waxed cotton, traditional, country, dependable in all weathers as the ideal partner.
In early 2018 we found the ideal, British made waxed and dry waxed cottons and canvas, after months of work, the ever expanding capsule collection is what you see today, along with seasonal Limited and special editions.
Ever since starting, Hayleys vision has always been twofold, "better, not bigger" and "grow where you are" , what could we use that we already have, where we already are. The Country collection is just that, trimmed in our own world class, award winning homegrown leather from our own and local farms, you can be confident that these products are handcrafted, with tradition and care, to keep your belongings safe for years to come.
We would love to see you with our products, please tag us on Instagram @hayleyhansoncountry_gb
