Wellies


Comment on Wellies

I too associated Hunter Wellies with the UK. I will NOT make the same expensive mistake again! Does anyone know of an authentic rubber Wellie from the UK? I question the Queen's standards now and wonder why she continues to put her seal of approval on items made in CHINA?!

As I read this, the family is watching the Last of the Summer Wine, a great English Icon was Bill `Compo` Owen and his Wellies, a true English Star who is sadley missed.

Hunter is 150 years old in 2006 and has been a part of British history and style during this time. As makers of the iconic, Original Green Wellington Boot, Hunter's boots are used throughout Britain in muddy fields, on farms and now even on the high street. The rubber wellingtons also feature the Royal Warrant.

What could be more English than a pair of "Wellies" in an English garden?

Every country home has at least one pair of muddy wellies sitting on the doorstep!
