Description

The Rise Collection is designed by Inuk fashion designer Victoria Kakuktinniq using real glass crystals. Nunavut's official flower, the purple saxifrage comes to life on our black suede hides in vibrant embroidery. A limited edition design added to a small collection of mukluks and moccasins.

About the Art
Inspiration for this design came from our ancestors and especially my mother and grandmother. Growing up my mom always provided our family with warm winter clothing such as parkas, mitts, and windpants. This was a really great way for us to express our Inuit identity through our clothing. By doing this for us it inspired me to want to do the same for my family. My grandmother, Lizzie Ittinuar is a well known seamstress who creates beautiful traditional beaded amautiks, ones that take up to a year to complete, and other traditional style clothing. Her hard work and dedication has always inspired me, her work is showcased in art museums within Canada and internationally. She put in so much intricate detail and elaborate beadwork decoration. The beadwork includes elaborate fringes on the hood and front panels, with beaded floral motifs. I have created haute couture garments that were inspired by her work and other traditional Inuit garments made by Inuit.

About the Artist
Victoria Kakuktinniq
Nunavummiut

The creator of Victoria's Arctic Fashion, Victoria Kakuktinniq, a Nunavummiut, born and raised in Rankin Inlet, has always been deeply immersed in the Inuit Culture. Surrounded by skilled seamstresses, Victoria was always intrigued and inspired by the parkas she saw sewn. Following a traditional sewing course in Rankin Inlet, she knew she had found her passion and soon after enrolled at MC College in Winnipeg, where she would prefect her craft in the Fashion Design and Apparel Production program. Victoria gained notoriety there for her form fitting parkas, with signature embroideries. Soon after completing the program, Victoria returned to Nunavut and created Victoria’s Arctic Fashion.

    Beautiful set of mitts but……

    Beautiful set of mitts but we found that they were not as warm as they appear to be. Maybe having the fur lining or some other soft lining inside would make them warmer to wear.

    Order has not arrived, and UPS status is unavailable. Manitobah states that UPS lost package. UPS says they never received the package. Where might it be?

Frequently asked questions

Absolutely! We make our moccasins and mukluks for everyone. By purchasing from us, you are participating in cultural appreciation, not cultural appropriation. When you purchase from Manitobah, you are directly supporting Indigenous people and celebrating Indigenous culture in an authentic, meaningful way that helping us in our vision to create positive impact in Indigenous communities.

To make our brand more accessible, to support our social impact initiatives, and to allow us to compete with other global fashion brands, we produce our products in international ethical partner factories. Our factory partners that support our growing product line go through an in-depth 3rd party inspection and internal Social Compliance Audit. These high standards are continually monitored and respected. We are proud of our manufacturing policies and our ability to build capacity globally. We believe that our success as an Indigenous business has been due to our willingness to walk forward while honouring our past.

Manitobah Mukluks makes a variety of products that match Canada's diverse climates. We offer select styles of adult mukluks that are waterproof. Those styles are tagged online as waterproof and can be seen here.

Both styles of children's mukluks are waterproof. They have been treated with our AuthenTEC waterproofing system; treated hide and an internal flexible coating that is inspired by pine pitch and spruce gum. Manitobah conducts rigorous waterproof and temperature testing using a minimum 50,000 flex standard.

The rest of the adult mukluks are constructed with natural suede and leather which are not sealed and not considered waterproof. We recommend treating them with a leather/suede protector to help with water resistance and general protection. All of our MUKLUKS are insulated with sheepskin footbeds and most are constructed with untreated suede which is porous (and not considered waterproof). These natural materials need to breathe in order to be effective in extreme cold. Indigenous people have been surviving in the coldest climates for thousands of years using this very wisdom.

Protection: Use a silicone-based leather/suede protector. Do not spray fur, as it contains natural protective oils. We offer a protecting spray as part of our Care Kit here

To Clean: Leather can be cleaned using a gentle soap and soft brush. For salt, wipe down with a damp cloth. Even if they have been sprayed, salt is corrosive and can cause damage.

To Dry: Once wet, allow your footwear to dry naturally

Wear: Never pull fur when putting on or removing boot, fur sheds over time and frequent friction will cause the fur to shed much faster. Cross laces over before tightening to avoid tearing leather eyeholes

Storage: When ready to store them for the season you should clean them, allow them to dry and then pack them away in a sealed container away from heat, moisture and pets (a plastic storage tote works great.) You can also use a pool noodle or something similar in the shaft to keep them upright during storage.

Some of our mukluks and natural-soled moccasins are not built on a traditional foot last (the solid form on which most shoes are molded), so there is no "left" or "right" foot. This method has been used on Indigenous footwear for thousands of years. It's completely natural for the shoes to feel slightly "off" or awkward when new, but over time the natural materials will form to your foot and allow you to have a completely custom fit.

Our sheepskin-lined mukluks are considered one of the warmest winter boots for northern winters and are rated down to -32 degrees Celsius. Partnering with Vibram has also allowed us to design a sole that allows your foot to bend. Research indicates that flexible soles promote proper foot movement and blood circulation to your toes. This means that in cold dry weather, our mukluks will allow your feet to stay warmer than almost anything on the market.
