Silverburn Browbands, founded in 2010, originally began as a hobby when it became increasingly difficult to get stunning show browbands locally and what was on offer just didn’t quite cut the mustard. A handmade browband was made as a bit of fun for my small hack, Silver, but it didn’t suit my horse, so the browband then went to a horse that it did suit. After several years of getting the hang of making beautiful browbands, they were frequently being asked for by friends and after a huge burst of interest, along with the arrival of my beautiful little girl in 2009 and a complete change of career direction from Interior Design, it was decided that I would make a go of making them for real, resulting in Silverburn Browbands being officially launched in January 2010.
Silverburn Browbands are handmade in Scotland, being made to any size and requirement using English leather or top quality Biothane, the very best quality velvet & satin ribbons, optional Swarovski Crystals or Premium Quality Crystal Chaining and Crystal Rings. You can have any design, any colours, any flag shape, any rosette style, and as bespoke as you require, even as far as completely designing it yourself and allowing us to make your design a reality.
You are sure to receive a quality browband to be proud of and the proof of this is Silverburn Browbands being Nominated and becoming a finalist in the BETA Business Awards for the SEIB Retailer of the Year Award in the Online Retailer/Mail Order category for 4 consecutive years of which we got to the final 5 from over 3500 nominations, Finalist in the Life with Style Awards 2017 & 2018 not to mention winning the superb accolade of The Scottish Farmer’s Equestrian Service Provider of the Year 2013, an award for which we were Runner Up in 2011.
The browbands are mainly offered as a bespoke service though you will find a small selection of stock browbands for sale in the online shop, or you can source ‘Ready To Go’ Silverburn Browbands from Country Ways Saddlery, Howe Tack Shop, Cameg Equestrian and Jods ‘n’ Jackets, Country Casuals.
At only 35 years of age, I am incredibly proud of the business I have built up, and I hope that any other potential entrepreneur reading about the business feels inspired to take the leap and start their own potentially award winning business
