Blundstone is 100% Tasmanian privately-owned and a family company. Our HQ is in Hobart and we also manufacture our gumboots in Tasmania, with the factory based at HQ. The factory has the capacity to produce 400,000 pairs of gumboots each year.
To continue to supply the quality boots you know and love for an ever-expanding global market, we work closely with five key manufacturing partners around the globe to produce our leather products in Vietnam, India, China, Mexico and Thailand. We choose our partners very carefully—we must be satisfied that they comply with strict requirements regarding how they manage their business, treat their people and consider their impact on the environment. We employ our own quality inspectors on-site at all manufacturing locations to ensure standards are maintained.
As a family-owned company with a long and proud heritage, we have a firm commitment to behaving as an ethical global citizen.
