Environmentally Friendly & Sustainable
As a brand, Hunter are committed to producing footwear that’s as kind to the planet as it is to your feet!
All of the materials used to create every product are sourced responsibly, with respect for human rights, animal welfare and the environment. Women’s, men’s and children’s wellies are made using latex rubber. This is a natural vegan material, known for being flexible, waterproof and protective. The raw ingredients used to make the rubber are sourced from plantations in China, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. Not only are these farms selected for the quality of their produce, they’re located close to the Hunter factories, helping to reduce the overall carbon footprint of each item.
In the battle of man Vs machine… Man won! Hunter are all about quality, not quantity!
It takes 142 people to make each pair of boots. They aren’t churned out on production lines, they’re made by real people using primarily traditional techniques. Requiring skilful craftsmanship, sheets of latex rubber are hand-cut using custom templates, before being carefully assembled.
