Hide & Drink’s exquisite products are handmade by expert artisans using beautiful Full Grain Leather, giving you a product that will last you a lifetime.
All Hide & Drink leather with reflective material products are handmade from rustic Full Grain Leather and include a durable reflective yellow and gray thick strip hand stitched into the leather. Our Full Grain Leather comes from the top layer of the hide, and has all the natural full grain characteristics of the hide...hence the name. It's the best leather you can buy and the only leather that we use. These leather products with reflective materials sewn in are excellent for night owls who love to go for a bike ride or walk the dog.
The flesh side of the soft leather is first stained with natural drab tone and finished with our proprietary beeswax conditioner. Our unique treatment helps the leather to retain its shape without the aid of synthetic stabilizers, offering a natural and durable look.
Hide & Drink is a vertically integrated community-driven brand dedicated to support the local community in La Antigua, Guatemala.

In addition to creating jobs through the manufacturing and sale of our products, we contribute 5% of our Gross Profits to outstanding non-profit organizations in Guatemala.
I got two and use them on the luggage rack/cargo basket on my truck and for bush crafting ... Yes bicycling too; an alternative to grabbing the bike from frames and carrying on shoulders when need to; it holds on its place well. I may get 2 more for bush crafting in future (it's pricey but it looks like it's built to last)
