Hides in Hand is located near Acton, where there used to be a significant leather industry (“It’s worth the drive to Acton!”). Much of the leather production in Acton has now moved off-shore, but Hides in Hand is there making top-quality product out of deer, buffalo and moose hides provided by local hunters as a by-product of food hunting.
A graphic on their site says “Made in Canada, 100% all of it, really made from Canada by Canadians”. That’s the kind of business we love to support!
