Ugg Boots in Australia
The term, ugg boots, originated from Australia, initially for utilitarian footwear worn for warmth, and which were often worn by surfers during the 1960s. In the 1970s, the boots were introduced to the surf culture of the United Kingdom and the United States. Ugg boots are the quintessential accessory for all Australians in winter, but where did they come from? The history of Ugg boots is complicated and there are many stories surrounding their evolution. Artisanal sheepskin boots were worn in rural Australia during the 1920s and were reportedly worn by shearers as they found them resistant to the wool yolk, which would rot their ordinary boots. Even earlier were World War I pilots who were pictured wearing their fleece-lined “Fug Boots”. Lifelong surfer Shane Stedman believes he invented the Ugg Boot and surfers wore improvised sheepskin boots to keep their feet warm after catching a wave before they were commercially produced. What is ugg stand for? Well, it doesn’t mean “ugh,” the commonly used interjection of disgust or dislike that was first recorded in 1837. The word may have derived from fug boots that were worn by aviators in rural Australia during World War I. The term is believed to be a shortened version of “flying ugg boots.” here at Mewe we just love them and wherever the came from we just love selling the quality in the boots

Some believe that the oldest recorded exchange of wedding rings comes from ancient Egypt, about 4800 years ago. Sedges, rushes and reeds, growing alongside the well-known papyrus were twisted and braided into rings for fingers another decorative ornament was worn by the women in those days who believed circles were symbols of eternity. Wedded couples exchanged rings made out of braided reeds. These were worn on the left-hand ring finger, which apparently had a vein that ran directly to the heart, later named Vena amoris.
This ring is given as a symbol of love and friendship – but it is also commonly used as a wedding ring in Ireland. It may also be passed down from family member to family member through the generations. On the ring, the hands denote friendship, the heart symbolises love, while the crown is a sign of loyalty.
