Chic Empire® is a boutique brand of handcrafted, luxurious sheepskin footwear delivering a unique blend of traditional styles with the latest fashion trends. Every pair of Chic Empire® ugg boots are meticulously crafted from a selection of premium sheepskins and components at our manufacturing facility in Melbourne, Australia, by highly skilled craftsmen.
Since its humble beginnings, the Chic Empire® brand of ugg boots has been associated with unmatched quality, exciting designs and effective customer service.
The Chic Empire story began 23 years ago in a small workshop in the bayside suburb in Melbourne, where a new immigrant from Europe established a company called “Australian Comfort” and began manufacturing ugg boots and slippers using Australian double-faced (twin-face) sheepskin. His decades of experience working as shoemaker in Europe helped him to create practical, well-made styles of ugg boots that quickly gained popularity among local community. Soon, he established a strong loyal customer base that included tradesmen, surfers, professionals and even some local celebrities.
In 2006, Australian Comfort merged with Clickcorp Pty. Ltd. enabling both companies to modernise and expand the production facilities and establish Chic Empire® brand. The joint venture has resulted in the exponential growth and popularity of Chic Empire® sheepskin products and ugg boots and exposed the brand to the global markets.
Chic Empire® continues to maintain a strong commitment to manufacturing in Australia and employs Australians to produce an iconic Australian product.
All Chic Empire® ugg boots are made to the highest manufacturing standards and carry Australian Made™ certification and have been tested by Australian Wool Testing Authority.
Today Clickcorp employs over 40 Australians and operates 2500m2 manufacturing facility in Melbourne, Australia with Chic Empire® boots being exported to over 27 countries worldwide including France, UK, Russia, Korea, China, Japan, just to name a few.
