WELCOME TO MOUSETRAP CUSTOM CLOTHIERS
I specialise in creating unique deer-skin clothing, to historical and contemporary styles. I use fine quality deer and elk hides accented by beautiful woolens and cottons to create carefully researched historical clothing. My customers include, among others, re-enactors of the Fur Trade era , and the Metis community. I also offer custom-made modern leather coats, vests and dresses often incorporating traditional Metis beading and embroidery design accents (example in the accompanying photo).
All work is done by me, at my new home on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
