Hidesign question

In my never-ending search for a briefcase, I came across Hidesign. They're an Indian company, but I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience with them and can speak to the quality of the leathers they use and their workmanship.

Curiously, there seems to be no way to buy from hidesign.com. Their US site, hidesignusa.com, allows you to buy online but the site itself looks skeevy and unprofessional -- precisely the kind of false store front that tends to pop up this time of year.

Anyone bought from them?

I bought one of their bags from a retailer in the UK, not direct.

The quality of the leather isn't great. I recently stopped using the bag that I have from them and replaced it with one from Tustings, the quality of which is significantly higher.
