Over the course of 2 hours of video, Lougaya clearly and precisely explains how to make your own moccasins with very few simple hand tools.
The great difference with most other moccasins and patterns that you can find on the market is that ours are made to be adjusted exactly to the morphology of each person. Patterns will suit people from size 34 to 48 EU / 3 to 14 US.
Just like a second skin…
Our moccasins are like barefoot or minimalist leather shoes, 100% in leather. In fact, they truly are like a second skin that can be worn on all occasions and on all grounds. If you are looking for natural footwear with high sensory feedback, you’re at the right place.
We are convinced that even people without prior experience in leather work, sewing, and shoe making can complete this project quite easily.
When purchasing our tutorials, you will gain instant access to the videos that you will be able to watch and replay as many times as you like.
Along with the videos, you will receive the PDF tutorial as well as the printable patterns.
The video tutorial helps to understand the right gesture, whereas the PDF tutorial highlights important details in large images and written explanations and helps you to keep track of each step in order. Even after your first pair, it is a useful document to remember how to make them without having to watch all the videos again.
With practice, a pair can be made in only 2 to 3 hours, but it would usually take about 1 day on the first trial.
Patterns should be printed in A4 or US letters. If you are not able to print the patterns at home, please send us a request.
The tutorials also cover the topics of choosing leather and tools, making soles, leather conditioner, and even some ideas to make use of leather off-cuts and other projects to apply the techniques that you will have learned.
To make good-looking and comfortable moccasins, you need to find very soft leather that will easily pucker around the toes. Ideally, it should be thick as well (1.8 to 3 mm thick / 4 to 6 oz leather). We know that such leather is not that easy to find, especially when you can’t go to a leather shop in person and/or that you are a novice.
