Held Gear is relaunching. The founder will tell his whole story soon enough. The new ownership will be revealed.
Held was an early innovator in durable vegan accessories and will regain that position soon enough. His products have earned hundreds of 5-star reviews with top-rated Etsy and Amazon stores.
First, the classic belt will be put back into production with all online shops open within 2022.
Going forward, this company will sell predominantly from Etsy and HeldGear.com. On this homepage, we will accept Bitcoin and Litecoin, as well as traditional payment methods including mail order.
Wholesale will be available to American main street retailers in smaller markets, gradually scaling up. When the opportunity to produce abroad becomes available, the same grassroots process will be replicated.
Manufacturing ethically has always been at the core of Held’s mission. We are in the era of sustainable product design and decentralized economic models. Held will be at the forefront of that.
Sourcing of recycled materials will always be integrated into our designs, allowing for limited creative product runs. Even the buckles can be transferred to new belts, allowing for custom design work.
The truly exciting thing about relaunching Held is rediscovering what is possible. Can we produce a boot? How beautiful can we make something that will last a lifetime? Imagination is key.
