hands-free bags inspired to liberate you from your baggage 


JOY OF LESS

We celebrate the joy of less and the freedom inherent in living life hands-free. Our belt bags, designed to fit just the essentials, are a reminder of the ease of living a life of simplicity--a life filled with more experience, happiness, wholeness and joy in exchange for less stuff. 

QUALITY, SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS + MADE IN LOS ANGELES

As a modern company, we believe it is our responsibility to take into consideration the welfare of our planet in the development of each of our products. We are committed to sustainability, produce all bags locally and ethically, and Source only the most innovative, animal and earth-friendly materials available for our products. 

DIRECT TO YOU

We wanted to make beautiful, sustainable, high-qualtiy products, but felt bad about the high mark-up that was required to sell via traditional wholesale channels. That’s why we decided to sell directly to the you, our customer. By cutting out the "middlemen" we can pass along those savings to you resulting in a good, fair price, far less than traditional retail.

MEET THE TEAM 

Debra and Rachel Denniston

HFS Collective (formerly known as Hipsters for Sisters) was founded in 2012 by mother-daughter team Debra and Rachel Denniston in Los Angeles, California. Since the beginning, they’ve sought out to create ethical and sustainable, hands-free bags inspired to liberate women from their baggage.

"Like most American women, I was educated to believe that my survival depended on the contents of a very large and beautiful handbag. However, once my youngest child was finally out of diapers, I desperately sought freedom from my heavy bag. The depth of my desperation was evidenced by the fact that I actually started wearing a fanny pack. While I loved the freedom it provided, I hated the way it looked and the ridicule it inspired, especially from my kids who begged me to hide it in the trunk when I picked them up from school. Worn down and out by societal pressure, I went back to allowing my big, bad, fashionable handbags to wear me for another ten years.

One day, as the chiropractor snapped my shoulder bag into place, I decided that I was too smart to act this stupid. If men can get through their days with only the contents of their pockets, women can too. I went home determined to design a truly functional accessory that even my daughters would wear. When my daughters confessed that they not only liked the design, but actually wanted to participate in it's development, I knew we were on to something."
