Our History

Celebrating Heritage

Laurentian Chief products are inspired by traditional First Nations footwear.

Eugene Cloutier

Our company Eugene Cloutier, has been manufacturing moccasins, slippers and mukluks since 1945. Three generations of craftsmen have perfected their expertise and passed on their passion to perpetuate the tradition and art of leather work.

The moccasins and boots, inspired by indian art, are hand crafted out of leather, suede or wild moose hide. Each creation answers to its mission: for outdoor or indoor use, for the traditional snowshoe walk, by the fireside or for daily activities. We take pride in our moose hide moccasins and slippers: appearence, softness to the touch and incomparable suppleness.
