Workmanship Philosophy

At Atikuss, we offer handcrafted footwear and accessories respecting Aboriginal traditions and adapting them to today’s fashion trends. We use only natural materials, from an environmentally-responsible hunt. We search out the incredible talent of Aboriginal artists and ensure that we pass this knowledge to the next generations. All our footwear products – mukluks, moccasins, and others – are made in Canada.

ENVIRONMENTALLY-RESPONSIBLE HUNTING

Many hundreds of years ago, the Aboriginal people were already practicing environmentally-responsible hunting. They only took from Mother Earth what they needed to live. They honoured animals, and wasted nothing. The entire animal – meat, pelts, and bones – was used to meet the daily needs of the people. Atikuss believes in this vision, because it demonstrates an unconditional love of nature.

HOPEBOOTS

Atikuss Hopeboots footwear, is the fruit of a project to support Canadian Aboriginal women, handcrafted using natural materials and ancestral techniques. Only pearls resulting from humane production to minimize the impact of mass culture on the environment and save the forests are used.

Out of respect for Mother Earth, the pelts and furs used for crafting the footwear come exclusively from environmentally-responsible hunting. Atikuss certifies that all Hopeboots are embroidered, beaded, and sewn in Canada, on a First Nation territory, most notably at its workshop in Uashat mak Mani-Utenam.
