Wuggs - Tasmanian wallaby fur ugg boots
Luxurious, sustainable comfort in an eco-friendly boot
Wuggs are made from the skins of wallaby processed in Tasmania for meat. We hope they will help realise a vision of a farming enterprise based on the animals which belong here, the animals adapted to our land. Turning the skins into high quality and comfortable sustainable fashion is another step to that vision.
Sustainable eco-friendly fashion alternative
Wuggs are made from the skins of wallaby processed for meat under strict Government control and regulation. The Tasmanian government has been monitoring the wallaby population for 50 years and have well developed systems to ensure the population remains extremely abundant. There are over 3 million wallabies in Tasmania and their population is increasing. Less than 2% of the population are harvested per year, doing so helps farmers reduce the impact of large numbers of wallaby on their enterprises and ensures the products are utilised rather than wasted.
Wuggs have a sustainable sole
Tasmanian wallabies have a digestive system that produces almost no methane, meaning Wuggs can be purchased with a carbon-free conscience. The CSIRO has for many years been attempting to find out why wallaby emit so little methane and transfer the capacity to cattle, we’d prefer to utilise the wallaby instead for meat, and turn their skins into the most comfortable boots you can imagine.
- Luxurious, sustainable, comfort - simply a great boot.
- Love at First Touch Guarantee, send them back if you don’t love them.
- Eco friendly Tasmanian product, wallabies don't emit methane, so you can wear our boots with a carbon free conscience.
- Wuggs are sensationally warm and soft, simply a great boot.
Wuggs are made from Tasmanian wallaby fur as a by-product of our sustainable wallaby meat harvest, helping to reduce waste.
- Wallaby are the animals which belong here, utilising them makes great environmental wisdom.
- Wallaby fur allows your feet to breathe, avoiding sweat and odour accumulation.
- Wallaby leather is the strongest light weight leather in the world.
Had my Wuggs for a week now, and I love them! Super comfortable and incredibly warm (but don’t make your feet sweat). Couldn’t be happier! Thanks team!
These babies are ridiculously comfortable and truly pamper the feet. Seem to handle moisture management better than traditional UGGs too. WINNERS!
I absolutely love my wuggs they are like soft little clouds under your feet that keeps your feet toasty!!! I wear mine near out every day since I’ve got them...
LOVE YA WUGGS
Our Wuggs hit the mark. Comfy & warm when needed. Big shout out to Sally & team as well. Excellent service and great communications.
The Wuggs Story
We’re John and Katrina Kelly and Sally Bruen. Thirty years ago we set out to establish a business producing food from the animals which belong here, which are adapted to our land and to which it is adapted. Katrina and John are both from old farming stock, but we wanted to explore a more sustainable way of producing food in this land. So, we started producing meat from super-abundant Tasmanian wallaby. It’s been rather successful, and Australian’s have shown wide support for the idea that it makes great environmental wisdom producing food from the animals which belong in this land. Sustainability is at the heart of what we do and Wuggs are the latest testament to our commitment to the environment.
