All M.Hulot leather pieces are Made in England, from carefully selected skins of Italian veg leather, then individually put together by craftsmen and finished by hand. We work with an entrepreneurial team of two makers, based in London’s East End, who specifically set up to work with the area’s independent and emerging designers. Like us, they love the small scale and interesting. We also use a factory in the Midlands, wholeheartedly passionate about UK manufacturing and with years of experience working with some of Britain’s best brands. Our canvas and leather trimmed styles are made by heritage bag makers on the Scottish borders, acclaimed for their quality outdoor styles and with over 30 years experience. A small, but beautifully run manufacturer and always a joy to visit, they are experts in their field. Each bag is constructed from robust, waterproof bonded cotton, and trimmed with Italian leather, military grade cotton webbing and brass fittings. We work very closely with each maker, merging the sampling and design process into one, bouncing ideas and techniques between designer and maker, to give you unique and beautifully finished designs.
The leathers used in M.Hulot's Uk made products are sourced from experienced leather merchants, and are the finest skins from Italian tanneries. Hardware components are sourced in the UK, and have come from a variety of countries across Europe, and sometimes in the case of brass, India.
