HYDE bags and wallets, running now on Kickstarter, are made of superior 5-9-ounce vegetable-tanned full-grain harness leather — exactly what is used to make saddles — and can long outlive the owner.
As the team behind these creations put it, you can bury this stuff in your backyard and it’ll still hold up better than you over time. The products from HYDE use polyester stitching and horse tack hardware for a complete package that delivers an antique look that seems right at home in an Indiana Jones film. The business card holder will run you about $25. That’s the current cheapest product offering. The classic satchel can be yours for $339. The notebook wallet, $55. For the rest we recommend you check out their Kickstarter page while you still can.
