How it's made

Handcrafted in Canada from fine Italian leathers and suedes, every la canadienne creation is nurtured from start to finish, delivering the highest quality product.

An intricate process comprised of over 200 steps that has been perfected over the last 40 years in our eco-friendly, Montreal based factory. Every boot is hand cut to ensure a quality fit and an unsurpassable level of comfort. We take tremendous pride in every item that we manufacture and deliver, continuously trying to improve our footwear to benefit our customers and adapt to their lifestyles.

Here we will take you through the main stages of the footwear making process.



The most creative part of the shoemaking process, our design team conceptualizes a design on a last.


Pattern Making

A paper pattern is created.



The leather is hand cut to ensure precision and minimal wastage.



At this stage the boot begins to come together and take shape.



A last is a mould in the shape of a human foot. Lasts come in many styles and sizes which give the finished shoe a fashionable shape and look.


Finishing & Packing

In the final stage boots are brushed, polished, packed and shipped out to the stores and consumers.
