Interesting Fact - Clogs

According to Paul Nijhuis, the owner of the Nijhuis clog factory in the small eastern town of Beltrum, the Netherlands, around 350,000 pairs of working clogs are manufactured in the Netherlands every year.

(Clogs (klompen) have been around for over 800 years. They are usually made of wood from poplar or willow trees. The Nijhuis clog factory claims to produce 90 percent of the world's "klompen".)
