Ugg boots in Australia

Sheepskin ugg boots are a cultural icon in Australia however, in recent years, Aussies have had to fight to keep the humble Australian ugg boot Australian.  Visit the Australian Sheepskin Association’s website to read all about it.  Also consider visiting Fiona Lake’s blog entry titled “Ugg boots – be careful you’re buying genuine Australian owned & manufactured“. She pretty well sums up the frustration of the ‘fight’.  Wikipedia also has an  entry on ugg boots but due to the open source nature of wikipedia, it is a constant battle to keep the information accurate.  Uggs-N-Rugs also feature in wikipedia.  In 2006, we were featured in a documentary called “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugg boot” produced and directed by Susan Lambert, Jumping Dog Productions for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

From time-to-time, we will add to this post as useful information comes to hand.
