Genuine Moose Hide

The largest member of the deer family, moose are a national symbol of Canada. Strong, majestic, and adaptable on water and land, the moose cuts an impressive and unique profile.

The moose has a long history and spiritual connection with Indigenous communities, who hunted them for meat, and used their hides for clothes and shelter. The word moose is derived from the Algonquin “mooswa” meaning “eater of twigs.”

Moose leather is known for its strength and durability. Sometimes, the hides retain markings from the animal’s life the wild, which is considered desirable and adds significance to the leather.

Maple Tan

Maple syrup is famously one of Canada’s most popular exports, and its amber tones are synonymous with sweet, natural goodness the world over. For thousands of years, Indigenous peoples have harvested sap from maples for flavouring, food preservation, and medicinal purposes. Early colonists were taught by First Nation communities to tap maple trees for sustenance and survival.

Laurentian Chief’s Indoor Moccasins for men are made with Maple Tan leather in the same warm, rich brown as full-bodied maple syrup. It’s a classic colour that works as the perfect neutral, adding style as well as comfort to your wardrobe.
