About Us

A Family business committed to producing the worlds finest quality bow hair.

Our expertise in dressing hair for the bow trade is unsurpassed and we can guarantee you that every bundle of white bow hair is worked on and picked for many hours to assure that you get the highest quality and value for money.


Our prices justify the honesty and dedication we put into the task of horsehair dressing.

There are many companies and individuals around the world who supply bow hair and claim that ‘theirs is the best that money can buy’. They often make unfounded statements about its origins and properties. If you were to ask them to take out all the damaged, kinky, chalky and curly hairs and tie the bundle back up, this might prove difficult, simply because they are merchants and not horsehair dressers. These merchants are in the market solely to buy as cheap as they can, and then sell for as much as possible. This can sometimes mean profits of up to 700% from buying hair and selling it on.
