ABOUT THE BRAND
Hayden’s leather stationery and travel accessories marry traditional craftsmanship with a tailored, modern sensibility and just a hint of off-kilter wit. Poised and always prepared, the Hayden customer will take notes on paper rather than a digital device, or discreetly slip a confidante a handwritten memo over the routine SMS. Less concerned with trend, and more with function, construction and beautiful materials, they know the right color when they see it.
Hayden products are crafted in what has become revered as the foremost leather bookbinder in the US, located in Melville NY, with solely Italian leather sourced from a tannery near Pisa. For Hayden’s stationery items the Melville factory employs a technique known as ‘Smyth sewing’, which allows the finished product to lay open flatter than a regularly bound book thus facilitating easier writing. Leathers meanwhile are selected with the Hayden ethos firmly in mind: that our favorite possessions are extensions of ourselves, and so should slowly develop patina as they follow us though life and travels.
