About Manitobah Mukluks
Manitobah Mukluks produces, designs, and sells traditional Indigenous footwear. For thousands of years their people have been using leathers and furs to create beautiful and functional footwear and they are proud to carry on this tradition. The furs and leathers they use are by-products of the meat industry. They are essentially taking a material that is considered ‘waste’ and utilizing it to make their moccasins and mukluks as their ancestors have always done.
