ABOUT STITCH & HIDE
Stitch & Hide traces its roots and inspiration from the laid back shores of Byron Bay Australia, and the sophisticated streets of Los Angeles, California. Think rugged beauty and classic styles, the kind of accessory you can have for years and will never go out of fashion. With a focus on quality, the finest leathers are selected by skilled craftsmen, with treatments implemented by natural processes, using time-honoured techniques and formulas developed by ancient and traditional methods. This old world craftsmanship carries a long history of superior comfort and durability.
Sourcing buffalo and cow leathers from Northern India, the full grain leather used retains its grain and natural markings through vegetable tanning. Each product tells its own story, making it unique and personal. Vegetable tanning uses natural tannings with raw materials obtained from different elements of plants including woods, barks, fruits, fruit pods and leaves. All our vegetable canned leather products can be recycled due to the environmentally friendly nature of our materials and processes.
By working closely with our factories in central and southern India, we ensure full transparency and accuracy throughout our supply chain and for everyone involved in the making of a Stitch & Hide product.
By carrying out the SA8000 audit, a leading social certification for factories and organisations across the globe, we are able to ensure safe and healthy working conditions in our factory. The certification measures the fair treatment of workers assessing labour standards, worker rights, workplace conditions and management systems are socially acceptable.

We practice fair trade with a goal to maintaining long term relationships based on solidarity, trust and mutual respect that contribute to the promotion and growth of Fair Trade.
