Sustainably created, Wuggs are ugg boots made from Tasmanian Wallaby fur and leather.

  • Luxurious, sustainable, and comfortable
  • Love at First Touch Guarantee
  • Comfortable and warm
  • Eco-friendly Tasmanian product

Wuggs are sensationally warm and soft, simply a great boot.

Wuggs are made from Tasmanian wallaby fur as a by-product of Lenah's sustainable wallaby meat harvest.

Wuggs are a softer, warmer and more comfortable boot featuring;

  • Ultra, luxurious wallaby fur lining
  • Wallaby leather is unique, it's stronger and softer than any other leather
  • Wallaby fur allows your feet to breathe, avoiding sweat and odour accumulation
  • Planet-friendly credentials - wallabies emit almost no methane so you can wear our boots with a carbon-free conscience.

Encompassing all the features of the classic Ugg boot, the Wugg boot is trimmed with hand-selected wallaby fur, adding extra comfort and warmth.

Wuggs have a sustainable soul

All of our wallaby is wild-sourced in Tasmania from their natural environment under strict Government control and regulation. The Tasmanian government has been monitoring the wallaby population for 50 years and has well-developed systems to ensure the population remains extremely abundant. There are over 3 million wallabies in Tasmania and their population is increasing. We harvest less than 2% of the population per year, this assists farmers in reducing the impact of large numbers of wallabies on their farms.

Reducing Emissions

Methane is produced in large quantities in the stomachs of farmed animals such as cattle and sheep. Methane gas emissions from livestock account for over 10% of Australia’s annual greenhouse gas emissions. Wallabies have a different digestive system and emit almost no methane.

Use less water

Wallaby water consumption is 70% less than sheep and almost 90% less than beef. Tasmanian wallaby is the natural choice for the environmentally conscious consumer.

Zero Waste

We are committed to utilising the whole animal. We use all parts of the animals we harvest so there is minimal waste. By turning the hides into Wuggs we can fully close the loop.

About Wuggs

Wuggs is an off-shoot of Lenah Game Meats, which was established in 1992 by John & Katrina Kelly and Sally Bruen. Lenah’s vision was to develop an industry based on the animals which belong on our land and to which our land is adapted.

Wuggs are wallaby fur ugg boots made from the leather by-product of wallaby meat production by Lenah Game Meats. ‘Lenah’ is an Aboriginal word for wallaby and they harvest Tasmanian wallabies under strict government control to supply meat for human consumption to supermarkets and restaurants across the country. By creating wuggs and other homewares from wallaby fur, they make sure they use the entire animal and reduce waste.

Sustainable

Sustainability is central to everything Wuggs do. Wallaby skins are a by-product of meat production and seek to utilise the wallaby resource responsibly. Every aspect of their harvest and production is tightly controlled by the government to ensure it’s sustainable and humane.

100% Australian made

When Wuggs began their journey, they were adamant that their Wuggs be made in Australia. This provides local jobs, and ensures a local attention to detail. Wuggs are made to the same size patterns as all other shoes.

The Back Story

John is a fifth-generation beef producer, a professional agriculturalist who has worked in the cattle and sheep industries from the Northern Territory to Tasmania. However, he decided to try to find a better way of utilising our land than by grazing it with exotic, hard-hoofed animals. He quit his dream job with the Tasmanian Department of Agriculture to set up Lenah and began producing wallaby and possum products.

Twenty years later, Wallaby is now a staple in Tasmanian supermarkets and rapidly gaining popularity on ‘the mainland’. John has been fond of saying that ‘wallaby has been the red meat of choice amongst discerning Tasmanian diners for 40,000 years. It’s only in the last 100 years or so that there’s been a hiccup in its marketing program, we’re just correcting that.’

Well, it’s the same with Wuggs, they are a by-product of this program.
