HUSK’s Commitment to Our Planet

How do we at HUSK work to be kinder to the planet? Everything from the materials used, our manufacturing process, to the packaging our products are sent out in has been carefeully considered and weighed against our eco impact.

Having attended BETA, Horse of the Year Show, and Olympia, one of the lasting memories was the smell and abundance of plastic, in all shapes and colours! Grooming products, leg protection, packaging, it was everywhere! And I asked myself, what are people going to do with the gear when they don’t want it anymore? What will happen to it? Do we even consider this when we make purchases?


What happens to that packaging? It goes into landfills or slips into the ocean it seems, and it disturbs nature. And we like to say we think about this, but realistically this fact still does not change enough of our purchasing choices. And it’s not just packaging, it’s products also.

How are we eco friendly?

Ethically made products

We know everyone by name, and we work with family businesses. We pay fair prices for the production of our products as we know this turns to fair pay for the our stitchers, cutters and designers. Our air flow horse boots, rugs, and saddle pads are all made by hand, and are not subjected to lines of factory machinery, just hands, sewing machines, cutting knives and scissors! We have relationships with our production specialists and we are able to amend designs and methods of manufacture directly and specifically for HUSK.

Minimal Pollution

Our products are cut using knives shaped to our patterns rather than laser to minimise air pollution. We manufacture 2/3 of our kit less than an hour from where we live, and source our fabrics the same! 1/3 of out kit comes from abroad and we try to order 3x max a year to reduce our pollution contribution. Our offices and horses are all fed by a natural spring, and we switch off all our electrics at night, as well as being very mindful about how much electricity we use during the day.

Recyclable Packaging

All HUSK items come in a reusable bag, our breathable horse boots in a wash bag, and our horse and pony breathable saddle pads and rugs come in a re usable handle bag, and that’s it!

Our parcels are all sent in recyclable and recycled plastic bags. With regard to our manufacturers, we re use our boxes and our bags to send items between us.

Minimum wastage

We do not over order so that we hold excess stock and have wastage, and we use every off-cut of material possible to make product from to minimise our waste.

We also use recycled fabrics to prevent waste in landfills, and our fabrics are also recyclable!


British Made


Of our stock is made an hour from where we live

Needless to say we at HUSK love our planet and all that it represents, and we do our best to look after it and represent it when we work.
