A huge and very warm hello to our customers, retailers, and fans!
I am very excited to announce the launch of Hayden-Harnett Collection. Five of our bestselling and essential styles that epitomize the high quality, functionality, and classic-with-an-edge/works-with-everything style that we are best known for.
Each HH Collection handbag is made in the USA in small production runs from locally sourced materials: the softest and most luxurious buttery cow leathers tanned in upstate New York, brass hardware from domestic sources, heavy and durable authentic waxwear canvas from american mills, and organic cotton canvas linings. Even the special hangtags and dustcovers for Collection are produced locally from American materials.
In creating Collection, we’ve updated and refabricated some of our classics: the Ibiza flight tote, Barnard crossbody, Havana hobo, and the lovely Biblio bag. We’re launching the Milton messenger satchel, a highly anticipated unisex style that finally met with ben’s “I’ll wear it” approval after six years of trying to create the perfect messenger. Both the new Milton satchel and the Ibiza flight tote in heavy waxwear canvas are unisex styles- hurrah, HH style for the guys.
Being a small and very dedicated American fine leather goods brand, we are passionate about our first entirely made and sourced in the USA collection and feel that it represents the very best of what Hayden-Harnett offers— quality, creativity, functionality, and great style for both men and women.
Producing locally in Brooklyn with domestic materials allows us a very fast turnaround for product as well as a very high level of quality control. It's a great feeling to help keep U.S. leathercraft alive and to make such stylish strides to support America's economy.
I hope that everyone enjoys the new collection as much as we do!
Toni (& Ben)
