UGG® is committed to empowering you with information on the materials and craftsmanship that go into our products; we want to bring transparency to our supply chain.
Like leather, which is the treated hide of a cow, sheepskin is the treated hide of a sheep. UGG sources sheepskin from sheep that were raised for the meat industry. UGG does not raise sheep, but buys sheepskin from tanneries.
To learn about sheepskin and the standards we have for our suppliers, please take a moment to read through the FAQs on the following page: http://www.ugg.com/uk/animal-welfare-faq.html
