Tiffany Zadi is a full-time designer and leather worker. She launched her first jewelry line after receiving her undergraduate degree but then decided to return to school to study law. Just one year after enrolling she was back to making and selling jewelry in her free time.
After graduating, she set out to pursue a career in Copyright Law but found herself frustrated within the confines of office life. With a quickly growing jewelry business, now called Heist, she decided to leave corporate America behind and pursue her business full-time.
A few years ago, Tiffany, who is (mostly) vegetarian, decided to expand Heist into leather design but was adamant about not supporting the factory farming industry. After discovering it is impossible to track a hide from farm to leather broker, she made the decision to only use hides from animals raised free-range.
Heist makes timeless, quality pieces sourced from the finest ethical materials: Free-range bison leather from a ranch in Colorado and second-hand salvaged leather.
We are dedicated to making high quality leather items that you can wear every day without any of the guilt associated with buying traditional leather.
