Perfect for wet weather conditions, this women's Wellington Boot has been at the heart of the Hunter Original brand since its introduction in 1956. Formed of natural rubber, each pair is made from 28 hand-cut parts and assembled over three days on an aluminium last bespoke to Hunter, before being vulcanised for superior protection. Featuring the Hunter Original tread pattern, and a comfortable polyester lining, this classic matte green waterproof boot is a rainy-day necessity.
We know our customers like to know exactly what they're buying; we're not going to sugar coat it, but we are going to explain it.

The Hunter Women's Original Tall Wellington has the following sustainability attributes...
Products using natural fibres can range from cotton to wool to hemp and silk - but by being naturally made, they will also naturally biodegrade at their end of lifecycle. Even if you have a natural fibre product, it can probably still be recycled or repurposed before being disposed of. However, if it truly has reached the end of its use, natural fibres need air to biodegrade so please don't dispose of them in landfill.
For a product to be Vegan Certified, it must not contain any animal products, not be tested on animals nor contain any animal derived GMOs.

This brand ensures that the factories they use have been third party audited but are not specifically partnered with a Non-Profit Organisation. This will be either BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) or SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit), which are social auditing methologies and reports but are not an accreditation. This means the brand has sourced factories who have passed an audit, so their worker rights, environmental impact and social compliance is up to scratch.
