Hayden-Harnett Handbags and Accessories

It’s hard to believe that a company that began on April Fool’s Day, 2005 could come so far in such a short time. Partners Toni Hacker and Ben Harnett have gone from selling canvas bags on consignment to wholesaling their luxury leather line, with custom-molded hardware and printed linings…to some of the finest boutiques and websites in the country.

Toni brings six-years of experience in handbag design to Hayden-Harnett. The gorgeous handbags are known for their superior construction, function and utility. Sourcing and developing the finest leathers from around the world, their bags are designed with an unparalleled attention to detail. Whether it’s a convertible leather-trimmed nylon tote that can be worn 4-ways or a snake clutch with a stow-able shoulder strap and slit pockets for your iPod and cell phone, Hayden-Harnett bags are showing up on the arms of celebrities and in magazines like Lucky and In Style.

Toni and Ben combine their quirky sensibilities, shared passion for form, function, travel, vintage finds and a rock and roll spirit to produce phenomenal handbags at reasonable prices.
