Everybody who is anybody in Aspen wears a Hayes handmade belt
Some of our first buckles were made for Gary Cooper and Stein Erickson among others in the dawn of Aspen as a ski town after the 1949 FIS races.
Over the years, our Aspen leaves have became a sign of fraternity among members of the local community, the international skiing community, and everyone whose heart sings with the mountains or who has a special attachment to Aspen.
From National leaders of State and business, celebrities, renowned ski racers, local mountain men and women. With our Aspen leaf, you declare that you belong.
Our business has by turns survived and thrived, and is today imbedded in the history of Aspen itself. Our jewelry has gone to World Cup ski racers, Winterskol Queens, Fire Department heroes, Roche Cup winners, and thousands of local and international personalities.
Why are our Aspen Leaves
Established in 1949, Hayes Co. created the first Aspen Leaf jewelry
line and belt buckles, and they are still made by the same family of
craftsmen today, spanning 60 years of Aspen History.
