About the Artist:

Nickie Isaksen was born in Paamiut, south Greenland. Her mother is Greenlandic Inuit and her father is Danish. Nickie grew up in her early childhood in the capital of Greenland, Nuuk. When she was a big girl, she moved with her mother to Denmark. Here she graduated from the Academy of bespoke tailoring in Aarhus back in 1995 and in year 2000 she graduated with a BaHons from London college of fashion. Nickie Isaksen returned to Copenhagen after her graduation in London and started her own brand label ISAKSEN design together with her mum Rita Isaksen in 2002. During 5 years between 2010-2015 Nickie Isaksen was the head designer of Great Greenland Furhouse, designing garments in sealskin and accessories in seal leather and skin. Today, Nickie Isaksen is the head designer and owner of 3 design labels, MIKISOQ (kids wear), G-LAND (street wear) and ISAKSEN (women and men’s fashion)

About the Art:

“The philosophy behind ISAKSEN Design is to create unique, quality, functional, graphic and timeless designs inspired by Greenlandic heritage. I was inspired to do my print art work that is used for the mukluks from my childhood memories of my beloved Inuit grandparents. My Grand-dad using the qajaq (kayak) for hunting and my grandma using the Ulo for preparing meats/cooking and our traditional Greenlandic costume. The print art work represents, to me,  the beauty of Inuit men and women.” - Nickie Isaksen

Art and sole.

Our flexible, durable sole promotes circulation and barefoot-like comfort.

Our high-performance Vibram® sole is also the canvas for Indigenous art. The Tipi design was created exclusively for us by indigenous artist Heather Endall.

Art Meets Technology

The world’s finest traditional footwear, from the ground up.

When it came time to develop footwear for the city, we challenged Vibram®, the world leader in high-performance rubber soles, to design a sole that could withstand the effects of urban environments.

Manufacturing

Proudly crafting the world’s finest Indigenous-inspired footwear.

At Manitobah, we use high-quality materials and talented artisans to create the best mukluks and moccasins in the world. It takes a lot of time and effort to produce Manitobah footwear and we take great pride in the comfort, function and beauty we create.

We also take pride in being Canadian, which is why we continue to produce 20 per cent of our footwear at our Indigenous-owned production facility in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

International Production.

Local Commitment.

Thanks to our incredible global community, Manitobah Mukluks has grown. To achieve this growth we’ve found global partners to help us produce some of our products internationally. I believe this expansion in our production leads to a bigger local impact.

As an Indigenous Canadian, AUTHENTIC to me means being engaged in and contributing to my community. It also means respecting our history while creating positive change for the future. And the best way for me to bring about that change for Indigenous Canadians is to get as many people wearing Manitobah Mukluks as possible.

Our success allows us to work with more local artists, showcase successful Indigenous role models and bring our culture to the world. We also invest in education and employment through our partnership with the Centre for Indigenous Human Resource Development, and I’m particularly proud of our Storyboot project, which helps revive traditional arts in our communities through business-building partnerships with elders and artisans who fashion mukluks and moccasins the traditional way.

Our Walk With Us program is also making a difference by allowing our customers to share in our vision and direct a portion of their sale to the Manitobah program of their choice. It’s simple. For every pair of Manitobah Mukluks sold, we make a bigger impact in our community.

We are proud of our success on the world stage and we welcome the opportunity to compete against all fashion brands. We will continue to make Manitobah more accessible to more people, and we will continue to make footwear using the same high-quality materials and thousand year-old designs that define us — whether it’s a handcrafted Storyboot, Canadian-made item or a mukluk or moccasin produced outside of Canada. I believe that our success as an Indigenous business has been due to our willingness to walk forward while honouring our past.

Thank you for walking with us.
