NOW 60% OFF. Women's Turquoise Trimbelle by Itasca - This fringed ankle bootlet with back zipper access has been popular for generations. Longer fringe gives a thoroughly modern take on a heritage style. The leather is an oiled hide with a high degree of "pull up," meaning that oils in the hide visibly move when the leather is pulled or creased--one of those leathers that keeps getting better looking with age and use. You'll see them worn with everything! Padded synthetic insole.
Itasca Moccasin was formed in 1986 in the tiny community of Lake George, Minnesota, located in the northwest quadrant of the state just east of Itasca State Park, which is famous for being the headwaters of the Mississippi River. The original store was a rustic, shopworn souvenir stand that attracted tourists driving to and from the park.
The founder, Mardel Bents, learned the moccasin-making business after having been sold a set of used equipment from a local craftsman. She worked during winter months making moccasins in preparation for the upcoming summer tourist season. As summers progressed, stock on hand dwindled until new pairs were made over the next winter season.
Over the years, Bents and her sole employee (who is now our Factory Store manager) perfected their moccasin-making techniques and turned out beautifully made, premium quality handcrafted moccasins; they also carved out a successful niche business doing custom pattern making for customers with hard-to-fit feet.
Though notoriously thrifty when sourcing leathers, Bents had the foresight to go beyond the use of basic cowhide and also sought out premium game hides like buffalo, elk and moose, as well as super plush sheepskin, used for slippers and baby mocs.
In April 2012, Bents retired and sold the business to Paul Kirkman who rebranded the company as Itasca Leathergoods to extend its identity beyond its moccasin-making roots and focused on creating a more fashion-forward vibe that was more closely aligned with its heritage and premium quality craftsmanship.
