Hôrd Limited: Handmade Bespoke Leather Goods And Accessories
Originally launched in 2011 by Gemma Gilleard, Hôrd makes high quality, handmade bespoke leather goods and accessories – from British and European leather.
The range includes a leather clad hip flask, a mountain credit card holder, and some traditional drink-ware products, including tankards, hip flasks, and insulated flasks.
Other products in the range include leather journal covers and pencil cases, key fobs, bookmarks, patches, wallets and coin purses – all of which can be created in various colours, to suit each personality.
Hôrd was originally started in 2011 by Gemma Gilleard. The brand was formed from an offshoot of a passion project called Gx2 Homegrown, which included illustrations, home ware products, and leather work. It was later on in 2014 that the business re-branded to Hôrd.
Prior to launching Hôrd, Gemma studied womens-wear at the University of the Arts London, however after bagging her degree during a recession, she struggled to find work. This was when she realised that she needed to take the bull by the horns, and forge her own path instead.
“My experience with textiles led me down the path of leather work, a material I hadn’t had the chance to work with at University, but one I had always loved the texture and longevity of.” said Gemma.
“Inspired by our local landscape, by old leather bound books, and by vintage hiking gear, I began to create small accessories that you can take on all your adventures. I wanted to create a brand that celebrated heritage from a modern viewpoint, and to create products that stood the test of time for all genders,” added Gemma.
