Craft, quality, instinct, precision and passion. There's so much more beyond 'handmade' which is why we have introduced our new Firsthand series of collaborations. An opportunity to celebrate the care and quality that goes into making something special.
We are delighted to reveal the first partnership in our Firsthand series is Yorkshire-based leather workers, specialising in custom hip flasks, HÔRD.
Beginning their journey ten years ago, HÔRD started creating small leather goods, specialising in hip flasks. Utilising leather remnants that would otherwise end up in landfill, HÔRD find the beauty in the remnants of leather and shape them into gifts that last. Each item is hand-dyed and hand-treated with waxes to ensure each item is given the attention it deserves.
Based in Marsden, on the edge of the Peak District, they are a family-run business that take great pride in their craftsmanship, taking time, care and attention to ensure that each individual detail is handcrafted to perfection. From their studio and shop in Yorkshire, they create unique products inspired by the landscape around them, encouraging their customers to take adventure with them wherever they go.
We are incredibly inspired by their passion, commitment to sustainable solutions, and dedication to the handmade process which is why we are pleased to collaborate with them on such a special product.
After working together for many months on the detail and design, we are delighted to announce our very special limited-edition hipflasks with HÔRD handmade by the founders Gemma Gilleard and Jason Booth.
“We like to say there are four ingredients – the finest barley grown and malted to our specifications, water from the Chapelton Spring in the Romach Hills, yeast and us, the distillers who make it happen!”
“We produce by hand to create beautiful products that can be passed down through generations. Making our hip flasks by hand allows us to guarantee the quality, care and attention that goes into everything we produce and we’re incredibly proud of what we do here. The limited-edition hip flask we’ve created for Benromach is a perfect example of our work and we’re thrilled with the end result.”
