The Hide Ranger

Manchester

The Hide Ranger - Original leather goods, designed and handmade in Manchester.

Alongside a career designing clothing for a U.K clothing brand, I nurtured my love of leatherwork which surfaced during an Art Foundation Course prior to my fashion degree.

Enjoying the tactile, hands on approach that comes with working with leather (as opposed to designing on a laptop), it was time to give a name to this side of my design work. Hence, The Hide Ranger was born!

Utilising traditional tools & techniques and working with the unique, natural characteristics of leather, items are created that are individual and designed to last - the antithesis of 'fast fashion'.

I design and make all of my items from my home studio, where I like to experiment and come up with new items to add to the range.

The Hide Ranger 'Rescued!' range is an exciting new, special collection that utilises leather destined for waste, such as 'pre-loved' sofas, off-cuts from local furniture makers and small leftovers from bag making. It's not only exciting to source and work within the parameters of the available material, but it also means that each individual item is limited edition, which makes them extra special! More items from this range will be added to the online shop throughout the next months.

I love to work on bespoke requests and am always happy to hear about ideas for projects big or small!
