We've used the softest most luxurious premium Deerskin and Moosehide leather which has come from our local hunters and tanned at a local tannery. We have also complimented this leather with a soft natural genuine rabbit fur trim cuff.
Our leather mitts have great dexterity even in subzero conditions and our silky soft slippers and moccasins retain body heat and are worn best with bare feet.
Detail is of the essence when it comes to our embroidery of the Eagle and the Feather. We are meticulous with precision as the artworks final presentation is flawless.
The thermal acrylic pile liner is topped with a soft genuine natural rabbit fur cuff. This liner can be removed for ease of hand washing and has optimal warmth for temperatures up to -35*. These liners are also replaceable.
Eric Parnell is a Canadian, Native Art artist. His artistic heritage as a member of the Eagle clan of British Columbia’s Haida Nation goes back many centuries. Eric describes himself as “self-taught,” saying that “books were my teachers”.
He studied the traditional Haida art forms in books on this subject, learning the formal descriptions of the shapes and subjects of paintings and carvings, and adapting and creating his own distinctive paintings within this tradition. He also began to share with other artists, absorbing their examples and suggestions, but always following his own inner vision of what he wanted to portray.
Eric specializes in limited edition prints but extends his impressive talent to drums, garments, table tops, ceremonial attire and now Leatherwear!
