Atikuss pays tribute to the caribou, which has been key to the survival of the First Nations and their traditional know-how.
Several hundred years ago, indigenous peoples practiced ecologically responsible hunting. They took only the essential from Mother Earth. They honoured the animals with dignity by not wasting —the entire animal was used to meet their everyday needs. Atikuss adheres to this vision as the company is dedicated to an unconditional love for nature. The Atikuss mission is to provide support to Canadian Aboriginal women. Atikuss' Boots of Hope are shoes made using natural materials and ancestral techniques. The artisans who make them bring history back to life through their hands, using ancestral beading and weaving methods to make clothing and accessories.
A visit to Atikuss will take you back to the time of the native peoples. History is embodied in the work that the company’s artisans will share with you. You will discover their passion for ancestral crafts and enjoy a glimpse into the diverse Aboriginal cultures of Canada.
At Atikuss, you may purchase handcrafted footwear and accessories that respect indigenous traditions as closely as possible, while being adapted to today's lifestyle. The boots are created in the traditional way, keeping in mind the importance of reusability, non-waste and giving back to the communities. Purchasing a pair of these boots is a great way to bring home a souvenir steeped in the local culture.
