We are creatives who believe in the great. Clever, thoughtful, unexpected designs carefully developed and mastered by artisans in Italy.

We are designers. From the initial idea to the construction and realisation we try and walk new paths finding solutions and uncommon approaches. If you are the hardgraft customer, you appreciate the uniqueness and creativity that has gone into each product. Your eyes are fine-tuned - you simply see what others don’t. Details make you happy. Surprising features keep you on the edge of your seat.
What We're Made Of
Your new hardgraft comes in quite a few guises but one thing they all have in common - sourced and hand-selected materials to excel at the job they are designed to do. Here's a shortlist of our favourites: TUSCAN RICH VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER - Gently tumbled in age-old oak drums and hand-stained. The best of the best, made the natural way with the planet in mind. FELTED WOOL - From thick, thin and extra-strong woven ones. We use an extensive range of highly renewable, resourceful and sustainable wools direct from Italy. ITALIAN VEGAN LEATHER ALTERNATIVE - Made from plant-based biomass, our bio-degradable vegan alternative features the traditional Italian embossed cross-hatch pattern and is hard to distinguish from the real thing.
