Hugrz Boot Wraps Salute American Workers

Posted on: September 4th, 2012 by Hugrz

This Labor Day, we salute the American workers, and the history of labor here in the USA.  Hugrz is dedicated to making as much of our product here as possible.  Sadly, some of the materials, like the faux fur fabric and the faux suede, must come from overseas.  They simply are not made here, YET.  Hopefully we can change that — but that’ll be another chapter for the company.  

Last season we were able to create 30 new jobs right here in Michigan.  As we grow, we plan to do even more.

Happy Labor Day!
