Our materials

Fur: Our natural fur is a by-product of the food industry. We pride ourselves in taking material that is considered 'waste' and utilizing it to make our mukluks and moccasins, just like our ancestors have always done.

Faux Fur: We've engineered our faux fur for optimal durability, while maintaining the warmth and beauty of our traditional fur styles.

About the Artist:

As early as Jamie Okuma can remember her life has been in the art world in one way or another. Her mother Sandra was a graphic artist and worked at MCA records when Jamie was a child. During her time there she produced album covers for Lynard Skynyrd and Cher to name a few. After high school Okuma took a few graphic design classes at Palomar College in San Marcos, CA before attending the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM. From the age of 18 she has been a professional artist completely devoted to her art. She has exhibited her work at the Heard Indian market in Phoenix, Az and at the Santa Fe Indian Art Market in Santa Fe, NM. She has garnered a total of five Best in Show Awards. Two from the Heard, and three from the Santa Fe Indian Market. One of only two artists to achieve this distinction. Okuma has work in the permanent collections of The Minneapolis Institute of Art, The Nelson-Atkins Museum and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian



About the Art:

"What has always guided me through hard times is creating and viewing beautiful artwork. Floral beadwork is the epitome of beauty in my eyes. I created these flowers in the traditional Plateau/Great Basin esthetic. Now more thn ever we need to surround ourselves with things that make us feel good. My hope is that these mukluks beautify your collection and have you step foot into that feel good we all need.”

Art and sole.

Our flexible, durable sole promotes circulation and barefoot-like comfort.

Our high-performance Vibram® sole is also the canvas for Indigenous art. The Tipi design was created exclusively for us by indigenous artist Heather Endall.

Art Meets Technology

The world’s finest traditional footwear, from the ground up.

When it came time to develop footwear for the city, we challenged Vibram®, the world leader in high-performance rubber soles, to design a sole that could withstand the effects of urban environments.

Manufacturing

Proudly crafting the world’s finest Indigenous-inspired footwear.

At Manitobah, we use high-quality materials and talented artisans to create the best mukluks and moccasins in the world. It takes a lot of time and effort to produce Manitobah footwear and we take great pride in the comfort, function and beauty we create.

We also take pride in being Canadian, which is why we continue to produce 20 per cent of our footwear at our Indigenous-owned production facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

International Production.

Local Commitment.

Thanks to our incredible global community, Manitobah Mukluks has grown. To achieve this growth we’ve found global partners to help us produce some of our products internationally. I believe this expansion in our production leads to a bigger local impact.

As an Indigenous Canadian, AUTHENTIC to me means being engaged in and contributing to my community. It also means respecting our history while creating positive change for the future. And the best way for me to bring about that change for Indigenous Canadians is to get as many people wearing Manitobah Mukluks as possible.

Our success allows us to work with more local artists, showcase successful Indigenous role models and bring our culture to the world. We also invest in education and employment through our partnership with the Centre for Indigenous Human Resource Development, and I’m particularly proud of our Storyboot project, which helps revive traditional arts in our communities through business-building partnerships with elders and artisans who fashion mukluks and moccasins the traditional way.

Our Walk With Us program is also making a difference by allowing our customers to share in our vision and direct a portion of their sale to the Manitobah program of their choice. It’s simple. For every pair of Manitobah Mukluks sold, we make a bigger impact in our community.

We are proud of our success on the world stage and we welcome the opportunity to compete against all fashion brands. We will continue to make Manitobah more accessible to more people, and we will continue to make footwear using the same high-quality materials and thousand year-old designs that define us — whether it’s a handcrafted Storyboot, Canadian-made item or a mukluk or moccasin produced outside of Canada. I believe that our success as an Indigenous business has been due to our willingness to walk forward while honouring our past.

Thank you for walking with us.
