About Us


Howl and Hide was founded in 2014, and specializes in handcrafted goods and accessories. From full grain leather tote bags to accented key fobs, Howl and Hide’s American cowhide sourced leather covers a variety of men and women styles. Our primary focus is producing amazing leather + canvas goods. Every product is made in our building built in 1902, formally the historic Coopers Candy Store. We are very proud to source 100% of our leather 1.6 miles down that road. 


The founder and owner of Howl and Hide has always worked with his hands, as a child sculpting anything he could. His eye for design is in his DNA, Christian great grandfather established DiGiacomo Fedora Co. in Chicago Il during the prohibition area. His love for leather came after finding a leather bag that was unaffordable. He began his journey in the leather world to find a way to make amazing products that were great price. His line has always been Leather Products with a Mid western price. 


After 5 years of making leather + Canvas bags and accessories Howl and Hide launched Howl and Hide Home and Collab. Howl and Hide home is every detail around you see around you. We wanted to create leather accessories that made sense in a home, workspace, or anywhere possible. 

Collab is a Private Label good company where you can see your business or your logo on our Howl and Hide products. Howl and Hide Collab is a way for companies to enjoy our leather goods with their logos and labels on them. We have a “laser” that can engrave any type of product. We launched Collab because the idea of partnering with local business was too exciting to neglect.
