For Jen… UGG related info

17 07 2007


The UGG® Australia story began in 1978, when Brian Smith, a young surfer from Australia, took a trip to the United States with a bag full of sheepskin boots. After finding a new home amongst California surfers, the UGG® Australia brand began to take shape. …

In 2000, Oprah was sent a pair of Ultra boots. She loved the product so much, she purchased 350 pair for her entire staff. Oprah then featured the Ultra Boot on her well-known “Oprah’s Favorite Things” show.

You can be assured that your UGG® Australia luxury sheepskin products are purely made by environmentally friendly means. All of our boot, shoe, and slipper uppers are made of 100% carded wool, which is 100% renewable. Many of our outsoles are made from 50% consumer recycled rubber as well. With Microban we have developed a zinc based anti microbial, which is inert and safe for the environment, and we continue to move towards implementation of using water-based cements for the assembly of our footwear, and soy-based inks for our printed boxes.

UGG® Australia uses only the best quality sheepskin exclusively. Twin-faced sheepskin is used in many of our core products. A piece of twin-faced sheepskin has been treated on both the fleece side, and the skin side.

The sheep that we use have finer wool & cleaner skin.

Isnt’ it nice to know that their sheep have fine wool and clean skin? Ten bucks says that they make the UGG Australia interns scrub the sheep frequently, then rub them down with Shea butter and paint their, er, hooves.

Yep. That’s how it goes.

From half way across the world. And being a big sister, I can always just deny it.
Seriously though, I’d put up with alot for those black boots. I just got a new pair of pj pants they will look AWESOME with!
