Established in 2014, our aim is to design practical and reliable leather accessories, made to endure a lifetime of use.
The original concept was developed by Simon & Davida Hadden and their four daughters. Having owned creative businesses for many years we wanted to develop a brand making quality goods in England. Not only an opportunity to revitalise and highlight some of the skills that England is renowned for, but to reinvent the mass market and create products that work for the modern day and continue to work into the future.
Our products and workshops are aimed at people looking for something different, an experience, tradition and authenticity. They want to know how and where something is made, the quality of the materials and the people behind the brand.
At Alfie Douglas we believe that the materials and process are just as important as the finished product. We welcome you to be a part of the process by learning, making and creating something personal to you.
