About Us

We are located in the heart of the North woods Minutes from many of the boundary water canoe area access points. Since the beginnings here of the French trappers to today this area is a rough unforgiving wilderness that will test the quality of any equipment .

We are a small family shop located on Sheridan st in Ely MN where we hand craft many of the items we sell.  We make everything by hand, still using the old world tools and techniques. If you come through the front door  of our shop all of your senses will be engaged from the smell of leather that greets you, the feel of all the different materials, ands the sounds of the tools cutting and sewing the various parts of the goods that we make.

We have spent many hours testing and searching for the other items in our store so that when you take them out you can be confident they are some of the highest quality.
