Native American Moccasins
For a great fit, we work from tracings of your feet, plus some simple measurements> We do not use a pattern or a shoe size. They are made to fit you.Our Moccasins are hand made and hand beaded (using glass seed beads of various sizes - determined by the design) on smoked or brain-tanned buckskin, elk and buffalo (double and triple soled). We work with each client to design the style and type of each individual moccasin - encompassing elements such as tribal style, bead color and pattern, etc. We also replicate a lot of old moccasins from museum photographs. Moccasins are sometimes aged to look old depending on your preference.
