The artisans at Atikuss make Hopeboots by hand, in the greatest respect of their traditions. This ancestral art almost disappeared with the last generation for lack of human resources. The fair remuneration and valorization of the women artisans make it possible to interest new generations and update this unique and mythical technique.Artisanes à l’œuvre
Since the dawn of time, Aboriginal people recognized the value of the Earth, its bounty, and its riches. The pelts and the fur used in making Atikuss’s Hopeboots come from environmentally-responsible hunting. We do not waste anything out of respect for our fellow creatures. Everything is used – either for food, or for the handcrafted products we make.
The embroideries on the Atikuss Hopeboots represent the time that the 12 Nations lived on the territory at Kepeuk (Quebec). These embroideries are fragments of history that have almost been forgotten. We offer you into a small incursion of this millennial culture. Dare to discover!
Now it’s your turn to take ownership of the Aboriginal art and culture. Combine boot models, pelts, furs, and embroideries, and design your own unique boots. Your personally-designed Hopeboots reflect your uniqueness, and demonstrate your creativity.Build my Hopeboots
