Meet The Makers
I am a Mother who wanted my boys to wear real moccasins. I am a healer, who knows the power of own my heart and hands. And I am a lover of the earth and natural energies that give and sustain my life.
After years of practicing Energy Medicine, of traveling and supporting native cultures, and finally making shoes for my boys, I bring you these. My own line of sustainably sourced, and responsibly made, life-giving boots and shoes. Each one is meticulously crafted, made to order, from start to finish with love and reverence.
May each of your steps be blessed.
I grew up exploring the oak-studded hills and rocky tide-pools of coastal Northern California. My bare feet found home on dusty trails, moss-covered rocks, sandy dunes. I was always kicking off my shoes!
I met Merrill when I was fifteen, wandering barefoot through the farmer’s market. Mer had a baby in one arm, a basket of handmade moccasins in the other. Her eldest son, barely six at the time, introduced me to the beautiful handmade shoes. I was smitten.
With her began my apprenticeship to leatherwork, my initiation into womanhood, the beginning of a lifelong journey as an artist and artisan. My hands, which knew oak-bark and ocean water and plant seedlings, began to craft shoes.
I continue to be in awe by the honesty this work requires; every stitch is visible, every piece of a shoe must come together just so. This work demands full presence and deep patience, every step of the way.
