Amber's story: Amber was born and raised in Baawaating (Sault Ste. Marie, ON). She is of Ojibway and Cree descent and takes pride in her culture. She began expressing her Indigenous identity and pride through the arts. Her interest in art began as a child. Growing up she had much exposure to nature, artistic family members, local artists, and elders. Her artistry includes painting, pyrography, and porcupine quilling. Porcupine quilling has been her recent focal point. She gives recognition to her partner, Jordan's, grandparents, Leonard Kimewon, who now is watching us from the spirit world, and his wife master quiller Elizabeth Kimewon who resides in a retirement home on Wikemikong First Nation. Also a special mention to cousin Mabel Lewis-Hill for pointers on the quilling journey. The introduction and teachings on the art of porcupine quilling is an honoured gift. Amber is one of few in her region mastering this traditional art. She is meticulous in her work and enjoys creating and designing.

Quills come from an animal that has its own spirit, therefore, quills have a spirit too. The earrings are one on a kind. Most of the materials she uses are all from our Mother Earth. (birch bark, sweetgrass)

In closing, Amber is very passionate about the arts, traditions, and language revitalization. She is an Early Childhood Educator and teaches Anishinaabemowin and arts to the children.   

Amber will continue to create, design and share her art as it is a part of her. Through creative art, traditions and sharing Amber will continue to honour her heritage. Miigwech!”

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.
