Hiawatha brand moose hide moccasins are traditional apparel in more ways than one. Each pair has a fresh, relaxed and modern feel, yet carries with them a living history of Canada’s first peoples and tribes.
What We Love About Hiawatha Brand Moccasins by Bastien:
They’re beautiful.It’s clear at a glance... Bastien moccasins are very special footwear. Created in traditional Aboriginal style, they’re made with handsome, supple leather. Soft to the touch, the detailed stitching and design will quickly earn them a place as classic staples in your wardrobe. Simply put, they are gorgeous, and so versatile. Available in men’s and women’s sizes.
They’re comfortable.You’ll be drawn in by their appearance, but you’ll commit to comfort! Genuine moose hide is one of the softest, yet most durable leathers, making these moccasins both snug and flexible. We love the feel of slipping our bare feet into the suede cushioned insoles. Rawhide lacing around the back of the heel means you can easily customize your fit, making these the most comfortable shoes you will probably ever set foot in.
They’re authentic.Bastien moccasins are 100% Aboriginal Canadian, made by Huron-Wendat craftspeople on the Wendake reserve in Quebec. Using materials and practices cultivated over generations, tribe descendants continue their distinct artistry in the Bastien workshop, designing authentic products distributed with honour and respect throughout the world.
The colours.Bastien moccasins are available in three sumptuous colours. Each shade lends itself to a new look, highlighting a different detail or feature: The light and earthy Natural Deer Tan, Classic Black, and warm, rich Maple Tan.

The craftsmanship.What’s most exciting about Bastien moccasins are the details.
Every aspect of their design represents generations of First Nations Canadian craftsmanship. Each shoe is carefully cut from soft, durable moose hide leather and assembled using ancestral Aboriginal techniques. The uppers and vamp are hand-laced and painstakingly double stitched. Insoles are fabricated with foam, cushioned between two layers of velvety suede. The quality of these moccasins is evident at first glance, and confirmed with every step you’ll take in them.
