About

Gale & Hayes is on a mission to design and create products that are one-of-a-kind, innovative, and that are rooted in high-quality and ethical standards. Gale & Hayes' leather and denim goods celebrate individuality and the artisan’s touch; a rarity in the fashion industry today. All Gale & Hayes products are hand-crafted from fine leather and premium materials, taking great pride in those minor imperfections including natural marks on leather. The more, the better. From foldover leather clutches and backpacks to two-tone tapestry denim jackets, and accessories a like, all Gale & Hayes goods embrace the natural characteristics of genuine leather and of upcycled denim- with the possible minor scars, folds, scuffs and marks seen as beautiful rather than considered defects. These minor marks make Gale and Hayes perfectly imperfect, one-of-a-kind, and individual.

Founding Story

The Gale & Hayes team is as passionate about design as they are committed to being a one-of-a-kind, sustainable and environmentally conscious brand. Producing the least amount of waste is a top priority when sourcing materials. When not utilizing up-cycled raw materials, Gale & Haynes uses USA vegetable tanned leathers that are chemical free to create unique products, no two of which are alike. Supporting local business is also a brand pillar. Sourcing hardware and other products from within the local community helps Gale & Haynes ensure the highest quality products. By supporting Gale & Hayes, consumers also exercise social responsibility by supporting a "shopping with a cause" brand which follows a business model of transparency as advocates of “slow fashion.” Today’s mainstream fashion industry relies on globalized mass production, where garments are transformed from the design stage to the retail floor in only a few weeks. Slow fashion is about being purposeful and making the deliberate choice to buy higher quality items, less often. When purchases are made, they’re environmentally and ethically conscious rather than trend-driven. At Gale & Hayes, they have combined unique high-quality items with the artisan touch that will never go out of trend. Gale & Hayes is a timeless brand dedicated to a more conscious future.

Testimonials

start quotation marks I love this wallet. I purchased it in natural and it seems to just get better with age. I fit my phone, all my cards and cash in it no problem. I recommend this wallet to all my friends. I especially love the wristlet add on because I am always putting things down and losing them. LOVE! end quotation marks
Via Gale & Hayes Shopper
start quotation marks I have a little collection of Gale & Hayes starting and this backpack is a total showstopper. I have the cowhide and get stopped seriously everywhere I go with it. It fits everything I need and keeps me from putting my phone and wallet down and leaving them behind. end quotation marks
I'm Obsessed Via Gale & Hayes website
