We offer a range of hand-crafted leather goods, specializing in double phone cases, phone wallet cases, and folios for iPads and Kindles.

We are bringing centuries-old tradition into the modern world, by adapting ancient motifs to modern functional designs. Our products are all made of full-grain leather which is hand-stitched with durable braided thread.

There are natural variations that occur in the leather texture. We try to select the best parts of each hide, but small scars or blemishes may be present and only add to the rich patina.

You will be sure to attract attention as you wear or carry one of these unique products. We hope you enjoy your purchase and appreciate your feedback.

Thanks

Jeff and the Hand and Hide Team

About HANDandHIDE

On Etsy since 2011

Carrying on the tradition

Why?
Hand and Hide has been helping revitalize American craft since 2011. Our goods hark back to an era when local crafters made their wares one at a time by hand. Our made-to-order approach allows us to give each and every item our personal time and attention. Hand and Hide leather goods are made with quality materials such as full-grain leather and remain beautiful and useful for decades.

Who?
Owner and designer Jeff Amrhein was traveling and photographing in the Middle East when he was inspired by the skill of the leather craftspeople in Morocco. On his return to the States he began developing his own leather craft tradition by creating timeless looking accessories for commute and travel.

What?
Our leather goods are influenced not only by what we use every day but also by our locale. The Pacific NW is chock full of inspiration, from cozy coffee shops to quiet wooded trails. We are constantly creating for those who like to curl up with a journal and cup of coffee as well as those who are constantly on the go with their job in their bag. Our tech accessory and travel collections keep your phones, chargers, and tablets organized and accessible at all times. Each piece is thoughtfully designed to ensure your fragile phones and accessories are kept safe inside of our durable leather goods.

How?
Our small team of dedicated makers stitch and hammer each piece by hand. That way no stitch or rivet is ever out of place. All items are checked by multiple staff members before they head out the door. Our level of quality is as high as our customer satisfaction.

What’s In It For You?
Take this opportunity to treat yourself to amazing leather goods and enjoy all the benefits of working with a small, local leather goods crafter. A real person made this handcrafted treasure just for you! And when you purchase a Hand and Hide good you are also buying our loyalty and service. We are happy to make any small repairs and updates as your piece journeys with you.

Feel Good About Your Purchase
Not only are you supporting a local maker but you are also helping fund the dreams of those in your community and country. We have been giving back to Girls Inc almost since our inception. Girls Inc is dedicated to empowering young women to be the Strong, Smart and Bold architects of our future. We have been grateful to be a small part of their journey and encourage you to learn more about this wonderful organization and the work they are doing all over the country.

Visit us for trip back to the past of well-crafted goods and come back for our quality goods and service. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look, it was nice to meet you!

Shipping
U.S. Shipping:
We ship all items domestically via US Postal Service (USPS) First Class or Priority mail (2-3 days) unless other arrangements are made up front. All items are shipped with insurance for the full purchase price and have delivery confirmation, so you'll get a tracking number.

International shipping:
International buyers are responsible for all duties and customs charges that may be incurred. These charges can be significant - often exceeding 25% of the purchase price. Also note that items can be held in customs for long periods of time. Usually items will arrive in Europe, Asia or Australasia in 10 days to 2 weeks, but sometimes it takes much longer. The US Postal Service will not allow an insurance claim to be posted until one month has passed.

Shipping upgrades will only upgrade the shipping method and will not speed up the crafting time.
Additional policies and FAQs
We handcraft all our goods from start to finish in our Portland Oregon studio. Each item is made to order specifically for you, and worked on by 3-4 makers before being sent off.

Some information about the leather we use:

We use high quality veg-tanned Italian tooling leather for our device cases, and some more flexible full grain leathers for smaller accessories and totes. We use only full-grain leather which means the exterior surface of the leather is the untouched surface; only the hair has been removed.
This makes the leather much more durable than other leathers which have this exterior sanded away and are finished with some synthetic material perfectly free of blemishes and character. Full grain leather still carries the small scars and scratches that the animal experienced during its life. We regard these small marks as character marks and they ensure that your leather item is entirely unique. We will avoid any larger scars or scratches that would affect the strength or durability of the product, but smaller marks may be present.
The back surface of the leather is much like suede - and is not smooth like the front side. Occasionally lettering from the tannery may be present on the back side of the leather.

Frequently asked questions
Do you have a Lifetime Guarantee?

Hand and Hide uses the highest quality materials and crafting techniques.

All of our products come with a limited lifetime warranty which covers defects in materials and craftsmanship for the life of the product.

Since leather ages with use, our warranty does not cover changes in the appearance of the leather.

What is UPS Worldwide Expedited shipping?

"Guaranteed delivery by end of business day to more than 220 countries and territories. Delivery is guaranteed in two business days to
Canada, three business days to Mexico, three to four business days to Europe and four to five business days to Asia and Latin America."

Gift wrapping and packaging

Our Phone cases come wrapped in a box tied with string. Larger items such as tablet cases are wrapped in tissue paper, small items are wrapped in cloth or a box.

Care instructions

Normal use should keep our products soft and supple. Most of our customers do not use anything to keep their item soft. If your climate is particularly dry, or you feel the need to apply treatment, we recommend using a neutral shoe polish. This may darken the leather somewhat however.

Where do inscriptions/personalizations go?

On phone wallet cases inscriptions go centered at the top of the card slots. On double phone cases they go on the outside either on the right-hand phone near the top camera or on the left-hand phone at the bottom, depending on the phones.

Can I use one of your phone cases with a slim rubber case?

No. Our cases are designed to perfectly hold and protect a bare phone, no additional case is necessary, and our cases are designed to be a tight fit, so there is no extra room for a second case.

Custom and personalized orders

Please send us a message outlining your custom idea. We are happy to make small adjustments to existing products when we can, but we do not make custom items not based on one of our current products.
