We Design It. We Craft It. We Live It.

Canadian to our core. Renowned for stylish shearlings, innovative materials development, and craftsmanship, HiSO is ever evolving and always sustainably-minded. From sourcing and design to final production, HiSO controls every step of the creative process in house.

HiSO - previously known as Hide Society, has been mastering the art of luxury outerwear since 1975. Originally founded as a retailer in Toronto’s Fashion District, Hide Society soon shifted to the manufacturing side and found their home of nearly 30 years on Spadina Avenue. Pairing with European sister company KK Berlin, Hide Society soon became the go to source for shearling outerwear.

Since its humble beginning over 40 years ago, through a commitment to quality, craftsmanship, and heritage, HiSO has grown from a small boutique producer into an international brand; found in luxury retailers and independent boutiques worldwide.

HiSO takes pride in engaging in an ecologically conscious approach through every step of a garment’s creation. Whether it’s alpaca, wool or shearling, we strive to partner with other eco-conscious companies, ensuring the best practices and materials are used to protect the environment.
