Tell us about your brand…
Husk is an eco-friendly, fashionable and environmentally conscious product. It’s a range of functional and striking bags and accessories made out of washable kraft paper which we believe is a unique and revolutionary product which can easily rival other textiles due to being completely recyclable from stitch to strap.
Tell us about the inspiration behind your brand…
Jon and I had bought a few industrial sewing machines and once started realizing the potential of the Kraft paper, we knew we were onto something special. It’s not often that two friends sit designing women’s handbags over a whisky, but we’ve been excited about each and every product and watching them come to life!
The biggest lesson you’ve learnt being a dadtrepeneur…
