Sustainable Tack Room Storage

Posted on 03/09/2020 by Categories: Tidy Tack Room Hacks

Did you know the we created our beautiful range of storage bags back in 2018 as an alternative to the plastic bags that are so often used.

We wanted something that was more sustainable and eco friendly, as well as being beautiful and easy to use. Our requirements for the bags were:

  • Waterproof
  • Machine washable
  • Extremely hard wearing
  • Robust
  • space saving
  • Easy to use
  • Beautiful to look at
  • Made in the UK

At the time we had a large range of the plastic storage bags, but we were finding they were not very robust or designed for long term heavy duty use. We also wanted something that had a much better environmental impact and carbon footprint. The plastic bags were sourced in India and came to us by boat, this meant we had very long order items and had to buy in huge quantities, which made life very hard if there any issues or problems with the orders.

We decided to look at switching to other materials and designs. We found the perfect material and were even more pleased when we found it comes in 19 different colours, allowing us to constantly expand our range, we also found a UK based manufacturer who also makes all the bags by hand.

The range of storage bags was launched, we first introduced the bags at Trailblazers in 2018 and they were an instant success. We again sold out at the BD Nationals in Sept 2018 and then in October 2018 i had the idea to start labelling the bags. I was finding it hard to locate my rugs in the bags and i decided one day to write on the bags with marker pen, as i got the pen out i thought why don’t we offer labelled bags as standard?

We had a range of labelled bags made up and introduced them at Your Horse Live in Nov 2018 they sold out within the first day. The bags proved very popular and we then expanded the range to add personalisation, so names. logos or rug weights etc could als be added to the bags. Again they proved a huge hit and we sold out at Olympia 2018 and came home with over 60 orders for personalised bags.

Since then we have continued to expand the range of bags to include travel boot bags, fly rug bags, travel rug bags, exercise sheet bags,

Recently we have made bags for The VIP pads, half pads and even back protectors – these bags will all be added to to the website shortly. However they are available to order, simply reply to this message and we can get your order sorted.

In June 2020 we released the colours collection which is a combination of colours and is so bright and cheerful, they really so put a smile on your face. We are also working on a lot of new products for release later in the year, and we are in the stages of finishing our purpose built tack room and show room.

As we expand our ranges and business we keep our core concepts at the heart of everything. Our values are:

  • Customer Service and experience
  • Sustainability
  • Quality without compromise

So for sustainable, beautiful, hard wearing and organised storage be sure to check out our range, and if you can’t find what you need please get in contact as we do make custom designs and measurements. Because tack room storage does not need to be boring.
