The business began when late founder, Ian Blackburn, launched the company from his home garage over 40 years ago. And after initially trading in the old time traditional markets, he progressed to high street trading with many sites nationwide.
All the garments in our range have been made specifically for Hidepark, to our high standards of manufacture. But, before this takes place, we will have sourced and purchased leather of the correct quality, selected linings and trimmings best suited to the style and designed patterns to ensure the best fit. Only then is a Hidepark label mounted in the garment and it becomes ready for sale.
This gives us a big advantage over our competitors as we control the quality, design and costings from the raw material stage and ultimately, through to the price. We are the only internet site selling a comprehensive range of our own branded leather clothing.
We now operate from a purpose-built, 10,000 square foot, 2 floor building in Grantham. From here we stock and dispatch all over the world through our our website and retail stockists nationwide.
With a team of 10 people, we remain proud that the business remains family owned and continues to invest, grow. and evolve to meet todays shopping. demands.
Our progress continues...
Our website is now updated for what we hope is a more modern day appeal. We are constantly considering modern innovations for our website which hopefully makes your buying experience with us easier and more enjoyable. Our website allows our team to interact more with our customers and in turn allows us to offer a more personal shopping experience, when required.
Leather has always been a vital part of people’s wardrobes and a staple fashion item and we're sure it will continue to be for many years to. We believe we can be a part of that as our designs still remain as popular as ever which makes us ever optimistic for the future.
