Two's Company

We’re monie.ka and James. We’re Austrian and English. In 2007 we created hardgraft - a renowned lifestyle accessories brand that covers everything from tech cases, small leather goods, travel bags, casual footwear, headwear and clothing.

A Gut Feeling

Hands down, we love creating. We are obsessed with every detail of every single product - each rivet, ribbon, material and leather has been sourced, selected and chosen by us. Designing together, we care a lot and we mean a LOT about the right balance. We have a pretty good gut feeling when something is right.

With a deep respect for manual craftsmanship from days gone by, we find a lot of inspiration in the past - from classic Scandinavian furniture to the smallest safety pin, all hand-made with such an impeccable detail and effort. The details matter. Our slogan ‘HOLD ON TO THE GOOD’ expresses exactly what we set out to capture from the start. Something that stays true to this day.

What we're made of

We use only the best materials we can find for the job in hand, a strong focus on Italian veg tan leather combined with wool. Colours ranging from browns to greys and whites to blacks. hardgraft is a juxtaposition of two opposites, it’s a combination of textures, creating a tension whilst staying balanced and pure. Every hardgraft product has a calm aura and quiet confidence. Not attention grabbing, but it catches your eye.

Sustainable

We produce limited quantities of leather goods and lifestyle accessories with small family businesses in Italy and Europe that care about the people that work for them, their quality of life and their working environment.

We never overproduce stock, we are extremely resourceful and have minimal waste. We are all people at work, humans who cherish and love our planet. We are not dictated by the bottom line. We make conscious decisions with nature and earth in mind.

We shape our tools and our tools shape us

hardgraft is versatile without being bland. It’s adaptable but always stands out for the right reasons. hardgraft is a rebellious brand with a calm, confident, cheeky approach.

We are designers and care as much about the aesthetics as making the product work, though we are not obsessed with technical over-functionalities. Our goods capture an old world craftsmanship whilst being futuristic and fresh. They are rich and upscale with a real down to earth appeal. All hardgraft goods are relaxed and casual with a real sense of refinement - instant classics.

Hand stained 100% Veg Tan Leather from Tuscany

Our vegetable tanned leather is beautifully unique from one piece to another and matures gradually over time. The natural surface structure reveals creases, wrinkles and little imperfections. The skin is tanned in age old wooden barrels with tree bark, chestnut and mimosa. How you use and look after your product will determine how fast a patina will develop.
