Fun, functional and impeccably made, Hope Macdonald puts a bold new spin on luxury. After working as a designer for larger brands, Hope became discouraged with fleeting trends and the lack of transparency and quality control that comes with overseas, mass production. With a commitment to innovative design and domestic manufacturing, Hope set out to do things a little differently.
Since 2015, she has been developing a process of printing on leather that boasts color and vibrancy while never sacrificing the quality you can expect from this premium material. The process begins in Hope’s Brooklyn studio, where each print is hand painted by Hope. The artwork is digitally printed onto locally sourced leather before each product is masterfully constructed by hand in the heart of the American Garment District.
