Julia's Story: Julia Tsetso is a member of the Liidlii Kue First Nation in the Dehcho (Fort Simpson, Northwest Territories).  She has a variety of education and work experiences (Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts in Ceramics, Urban & Regional Planning Diploma, Community Justice Coordinator, House Painter, and Dental Therapist).  Life in a northern town has affirmed her love for the natural environment and her community.

Nature, birch-bark baskets and traditional Dene garments are the main inspirations for her sewing and pottery.  Her recent work includes sewn decorative cases for hunters (roll out canvas cases for tools and knife sheaths) and Dene baby essentials (mossbags and baby belts).  Her stoneware pots are made on a potter’s wheel then hand altered to redefine their shape, carved, bisque-fired, glazed and finally fired in a wood kiln.  

She incorporates traditional Dene materials (glass and semiprecious-stone beads, antler and bone beads, moose-hide and caribou-hide and fur) to decorate her sewing and to add accents to her pottery.  These mixed mediums have become her signature and have allowed her to put new spins on her Dene traditions. 

Julia established Flutteryby Pottery in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta in 2005, and moved it to Fort Simpson, Northwest Territories two years later.  Recently, she’s changed the name to Flutterby Sales & Service to incorporate additional services (pottery, sewing, hemp product sales, and contract construction with her husband).  She continues to live in and to make things for life in the north.

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.


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 some collections at our Indigenous-owned production facility in Winnipeg, Canada.

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.
