Hi! My name is Mardel Bents.
I have owned Itasca Moccasin since 1986. I purchased the steel dies and equipment and started my own business with my own production line of moccasins in Lake George, Minnesota. I have supplied retail outlets with my moccasin designs ever since! It took me 2 years to become a moccasin maker. "1 year to learn how to make em', and 1 year to make em' fit." We make our moccasins out of buffalo, elk, and cowhide (both suede and full grain).
We use all natural leather - SOFT so it molds to the shape of your foot. They are all STURDY and will last for years! All our moccasins are cut from 4 to 4 1/2 ounce highly buffed leather. The end result is a soft comfortable moccasin.
Most of our moccasins are made with Leather Canoe Soles - an extra layer of hide adds protection to the bottom of the moccasin, but with a style that says you run as free as the Mississippi River!
AND - unlike Minnetonka Moccasins, our moccasins are all made in the U.S.A!
Made in Lake George, Hubbard County, Minnesota, made in the USA footwear.Z
