Part of the motivation behind starting Hame Golf was to give golfers an option of quality and long lasting golf accessories, whilst aiming to be as sustainable as possible. Providing an alternative to mass produced covers.
Harris Tweed is naturally renewable, biodegradable and recyclable. It is wind and water resistant without the need for additional chemical finishes. Harris Tweed mills comply with world leading legislative standards including the use of biodegradable dyeing processes. The weaving and textile production creates sustainable employment opportunities for generations of islanders.
Wrapping it up
The products are packaged in recycled cardboard boxes/ envelopes padded with cardboard. Every element of the packaging is recyclable right down from the business cards to the tape. I have chosen not to attach removable labels or sewn in care labels to the products to reduce waste.
All the leather I use is a by-product of the food industry. It is tanned through natural processes, reducing additional chemical treatments.
The production and restock model means there is never any more than needed. This means no waste.
I also love to up-cycle materials of sentimental value into covers. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if this is something that interests you.
Whilst the leather and wax canvas covers have fully natural linings of Harris Tweed, the Harris Tweed and tartan covers are lined with polyester fleece that is partially recycled, I have chosen to use this for its durability and resistance to moisture and dirt. I am on the hunt for a fully recycled version of the fleece lining, unfortunately alternatives that have been trailed have significantly reduced performance and quality.
