Posted on: June 11th, 2011 by Hugrz

From a recent TV 20 Huggrz Article:  Entirely a Deb Miller (president/founder of DB Designs, LLC of Grosse Pointe Park, MI) concept, no other company offers them. Huggrz™  Boot Wraps are much more than a new “line,” they’re an entirely new “product,” never before seen in the market place. Click here to read the full article.

 

Huggrz Boot Wraps founder, Deb Miller, interviewed in My Handmade Addiction

Posted on: June 6th, 2011 by Hugrz

Earlier this year, Deanna, author of the blog, My Handmade Addiction, interviewed Deb Thelen Miller, inventor of the Huggrz Boot Wraps.  Deanna is devoted to buying handmade, organic and health conscious products whenever possible and when she stumbled upon Huggrz Boot Wraps in Olivers Trends, she had to find out more about the faux fur boot covers that are being exclusively made in Michigan. Below is an excerpt of the interview:

My Handmde Addiction (MHA): For those who aren’t familiar with Huggrz, please tell us what they are.

DM (Deb Miller): Huggerz Boot Wraps are a cover for your boots that make them look like a totally different pair of boots. They do not just look like something added to the leg of the boot.

MHA: If you had a tagline for Huggerz what would it be?

DM: Our tag line is “Wrap your boots to suit your moods.”

MHA: How and where did you come up with the idea for Huggerz?

DM: I was in a hockey rink and my feet were freezing. I was wearing boots and wool socks, but not the super warm shearling style boots. I knew then that I needed to invest in a pair, but when I started shopping, I could not decide what style to buy. I loved the ones with the fur. I loved the ones with the knit. I loved the patterned ones. But, I could not buy 3 or 4 different pairs, and I hated to spend all that money and be “stuck” with one look. That is when the idea hit me.

Woman tries to buy Huggrz Boot Wraps off daughter’s feet

Pink Panther Huggrz Boot Wraps

I was out with my daughter, Hannah, who was wearing her Pink Panther Huggrz. We were doing a little holiday shopping at a local mall and a woman approached us to inquire where we “bought these adorable boots”. My daughter, who is so proud of them, explained to the lady that they were special [boot wraps] and not boots. After further inspection, this lady offered us $50 for the Huggrz right on the spot, explaining that her granddaughter would just love these Huggrz.

My daughter, in her diva way, told this woman that these were “special furry friends” and that they belonged to her and only her. I wrote down the website for this lady and while she was disappointed that she would not be able to “buy these Huggrz off my daughter’s feet,” she was happy to know where they came from and also happy that they were a Michigan product too! I cannot tell you how many compliments we have received and how many times I have written down the website for others.

What a great concept!!!
