Buffalo Leather Moccasins

I have a new favourite pair of moccasins!

I am in love with the new buffalo hides I purchased! When the holidays ended I was ecstatic to finally have time to cut into the Peanut hide, and make a pair of moccasins.

This leather is thick and durable. It was tougher to cut and sew (I have the cuts and blisters on my hands to prove it!) but worth the extra work.

I think these make a handsome pair of moccasins. The fringe can be omitted for anyone craving a less flashy look.

I love that my work can be so portable. I sewed these at a coffee shop in town while I waited for a hair appointment. 

If you are looking for a strong, durable pair of moccasins, that are also fashionable, you can find these in my shop. I love making custom orders, so feel free to send me a message with any questions you may have. 

Happy New Year! I hope this is your best year EVER!!

My Exciting News!

Okay, so I hinted that these two lovely mocc's above were headed somewhere exciting.

Here is the news! Manitobah Mukluks has accepted my moccasins into their Storyboot Project!!!! What does that mean? It means that I sent them my two pairs of moccasins, they photographed, listed and will sell my moccasins on their website, and when they sell my moccasins, 100% of the sale comes to me! They do this as a way to give back to the community and support Native Artists! Not only that, but they adjusted the price on my moccasins by increasing the price $30 each. They told me they are on a mission to educate the public that moccasin making is an art not just a craft and therefore my moccasin prices needed to be increased to value the artistic quality of them. How incredible is this?!

I am feeling so grateful and fortunate for this opportunity!

Today, the moccasins have been listed. I took a quick screen shot of each to share with you. Here they are:

You can find them by visiting the Storyboot Project on Manitobah Mukluks website, and scroll through all the beautiful and amazing works of art for your feet.
