Jamie Gentry Designs
Jamie is a Kwakwaka’wakw designer who grew up immersed in culture and surrounded by talented artists. Her whole life she was drawn to the arts, music, dance, drawing, painting, and particularly drawn to working with her hands, whether it was sewing, beading or weaving.
For as long as Jamie can remember she have wanted to make moccasins. However it wasn’t until she moved to Sooke that she was able to find a teacher and from that day forward she hasn't stopped.
Her goal is to create meaningful connections through moccasin making. When we connect with the maker and the product, we are more likely to hold that product closer to us, and it is less likely for that product to end up in a landfill. Jamie hopes to contribute a meaningful product to the world, build connections, and share culture.
Each pair of moccasins is custom made. No hides are cut until Jamie knows who the moccasins are for. This way she can put thoughtful, specific intentions into each pair, for every individual.
Jamie makes traditional, custom made moccasins for modern day living. Her focus is on style, comfort, and durability with an emphasis on sustainability. Each pair is cut, beaded, sewn, carved by hand and infused with love making each pair unique.
From her heart to your sole.
