We have chosen to add drawn images of art in the form of embroidery onto our leathers. These images all have a personal meaning to the artist and showcases and marriages so beautifully onto our deerskin and moose hide leathers. As we collaborate with our Indigenous artists we continually learn the meanings of their cultural expression.
This power of art and cultural gift is a true presentation to our customers, followers and community.
We have high ethical standards and a genuine sense of responsibility to our Indigenous artists and pay generous royalties to them for their artwork.
As an artist and designer myself, this Elite section is a place where I too can really express some of my own artwork and ideas. As I love working with leathers and furs, this section allows me to take my creativity to another level. Make sure you come back and visit this section and find what treasures we've added.

I created the 'Sabrina' line because the florals that my matriarchs used are simply beautiful. I feel that re-introducing this bright, colorful and beautiful floral is a trend that just does not end. It's pretty, it's feminine and it's very folklore. A style that can be worn by anyone who loves color and all things pretty.
