Made in Canada. 100% Canadian Native, Authentic Aboriginal.
Every pair of moccasins is custom designed. They are designed from your foot tracing, so they are a custom fit. The artist uses traditional Métis practices and materials. The work demonstrates a respect for nature and the teachings passed down by Elders. The Métis are known as “The Flower Beadwork People”, and their traditional garments are decorated with floral artwork. This European folk art was taught to the Metis by the Grey Nuns, in the form of silk thread embroidery. When seed beads were brought to Canada as trades goods, the Metis put them to use in the same floral designs that they had become so skilled at. This is why you’ll find authentic floral beadwork on all Lisa Shepherd, Metis Artisan moccasin designs. The moccasins 100% eco-friendly. No machines or electricity are used. They are the real thing. Every pair is hand-stitched, hand-beaded and a unique piece of Métis art. Made exclusively in Canada.
