Our Story


Born in the bleak rolling moors of Yorkshire,  HÔRD is the livelihood of two kindred spirits, Gemma and Jason.

Gemma founded HÔRD back in 2012, creating bespoke leather goods which utilised leather remnants saved from landfill and combined it with hand engraved, illustrative motifs. HÔRD has grown to be a brand which celebrates the intricacies and dynamics of leather - combining a love for traditional methods with a modern vision. From a background in Fashion Design, Gemma's experience with leather has been mostly self taught and from here, she then became a 'teacher'. Her partner in life, Jason joined the business in 2015 and with that started the training of his own skills in the ways of leather.  From hand engraving and stamping to hand sewing and dying pieces, HÔRD embraces the joys of hand crafted industry to create life long gifts and mementos.

Featured in 'The Guardian', 'Liberty of London', 'Stylist Magazine', 'The Natural History Museum' and more, Hord is renowned for providing high quality and unique gift ware, providing luxurious texture and expressing a limitless personalised design service.
