Fashion Item of the Week - Moccasins


























The slouchy, hippie side of me would like to wear moccasins all day long. Should you be traveling in Canada, picking up a pair of these handmade shoes is a must, either for yourself or as a gift to return home with. Your friends will love you if you bring them a pair of these buttery soft mocs, made from moose and caribou leathers (hunted in the wild for food) that are hand crafted and beaded in Northern Quebec. I've been waiting an entire year to come north, to a little outpost on the way to Tobormory, to pick myself out a pair. I've been parading around in them ever since.

  1. Those look so comfortable, Chania you're right - you could live in them.

  3. Hello Chania

    Those are just beautiful and almost too great to wear. I think I would display mine in my library.

    Tobormory must be beautiful this time of year

  4. You know eventually we will be living in a place where a not too long drive will find us in Canada .. I look forward to that ( among a million other things:) )

  9. I had a pair for both of my children when they were babies. They were the only slippers that would stay on their feet at that stage. I absolutely loved them. Ours were made by an Innu woman in Labrador but very similar looking.
