Freshly Picked:
Children’s Made With Love Moccasins


“My grandmother is native American and I grew up wearing moccasins”, explains Susan Petersen, who started to make her first baby moccasins after becoming frustrated by the lack of well-designed baby shoes for her own kids…
Gus her second child was her mocc-tester… when 2009 all started with a huge bag of scrap leather Susan had picked up at a yard sale… and sitting at her kitchen table, started to experiment with different designs… she tried and persisted… and finally created a pair of soft moccasins that looked quite adorable on her sons chubby baby feet… and miraculously even stayed on that little feet…
Since then her made-with-love-moccasins who are made in California and Mexico, have gone through about six design changes… as Susan tried to perfect the look and the fit of her soft-soled tiny shoes.
Those you purchase today are durable, meticulously designed… and maybe the most important thing: they will stay on those highly energetic children feet…
Each pair of moccasins are made with care and perfection and a love for the small delicate tender feet they are intended for!
Maybe therefore even Hollywood is crazy about those fancy shoes… Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Kelly Clarkson have already ordered several pairs…
