We proudly handcraft all of our webbing products in Squamish, British Columbia, a beautiful coastal town of 16,000 residents. Situated on the edge of the true wilds, yet only an hour drive from Vancouver to the south and 45 minutes north to Whistler Blackcomb, one of the ski world’s crown jewels.
Amazing talented people choose to live here seeking the elusive work life balance that this location provides. These are the folk that pour their creativity and energy into Silverfoot. They understand that collars and leashes connect us to the animals we love, and that crafting beautiful products is an extension of living life to the full.
We took twenty-four years of collar making expertise on a journey to find the perfect partner to help us craft amazing leather collars overlaid with our brilliant braid designs. Our friends Miriam and Alex, recent immigrants to Canada from Mexico, provided the answer. Their family had been producing premium leather goods for generations.
Initial visits included family dinners and an introduction to the world of working with fine leather. From the tannery where select hides are chosen, through the artisans handling of the full hide leather to the application of our braided ribbon and hardware, generations of handcrafted experience were brought to bear. The highest quality materials and this shared expertise make the most beautiful leather collars we have ever seen.
