About

Forest & Hyde is a veteran owned leather goods brand founded in 2017. We handcraft heirloom quality bags, wallets and accessories that are guaranteed for a lifetime of use.

 

 

My name is Daniel Lang and I am a veteran of the United States Air Force and the chief designer and maker here at Forest & Hyde. I operate this small batch leather goods company with the help of my beautiful wife and our large family of 5 sons and 1 daughter.

As a young boy, I was fascinated with making things and learned the importance of good craftsmanship in my Grandfathers workshop. With his help, I realized the satisfying feeling of designing and crafting something and putting my mark on it. I carried that love of crafting to the Air Force where I helped design and manufacture aircraft parts.

I started this small business to fuel my desire to create and to introduce high quality, handcrafted leather goods with a focus on quality over quantity. I believe that creating change you believe in is good for the soul. That’s why each product we create is designed and crafted in our small shop using the best American made materials.

  

 

Each of our products are designed and handcrafted in our Kentucky shop. Our designs focus on utility and each is meticulously crafted with attention to every detail.  

We believe the process is just as important as the product. We choose to employ centuries old leather craft techniques that are proven to produce superior results and heirloom quality.  

Since our goods are designed and manufactured in-house, we can collaborate with individuals or corporations to create custom designs for any occasion.  

Whether you are a large corporation or a customer looking for that perfect gift; we pride ourselves on making sure you are completely satisfied with your purchase. We craft goods for the long haul. Our pieces are meant to survive generations and be passed down as treasured heirlooms. 

Thank you for visiting Forest & Hyde.
