0.hide is a brand founded in 2020 by Bo, a self-taught designer from The Netherlands.
There was always a strong attraction to avantgarde work and brutalist art. The materials and craftmanship attracted him to certain types of pieces, he looks at it as a form of art. After a short study at the academy of fine arts in Maastricht (2018), he felt a strong urge to do something with his passion for artisanal and leather goods. He decided to buy some leather and started designing some simple bags and wallets. He noticed that people loved his work and built his way up to where he is now.
He mainly focuses on leatherwork, using distinct, exclusive leather types such as horse or bison.
All products are made exclusively on order to preserve the handwork and uniqueness of the pieces made. It’s an essential and time consuming effort that everything is done by the same two hands. This effort is reflecting in top quality and timeless pieces that will be with you for many years.
His work is best described as minimal with great attention to detail and natural characteristics in the materials used. When selecting materials, he looks for rough hides with many natural signs such as scarring and stretchmarks. This is achieved by working together with a select group of suppliers that source and process the leathers in small batches and using only natural ingredients.
He wants to give the customer the feeling that he/she is wearing something straight from the source.
