Quoddy, Handsewn in Maine

We have received a box from Quoddy and boy has it been long anticipated, by me anyway.  The Shorey family has been crafting moccasins for generations, beginning in the early 1900s with Harry Smith Shorey, a handsewer for L.L. Bean , whom also operated his own shop.

Today, the Shorey family continues the fine tradition. In downeast Maine, Quoddy creates traditional moccasin styles using the same time-honored techniques and quality materials. Each process is done by hand — cutting, skiving, stitching, and handsewing.

This shipment featured two boot styles.  One is based on the 809 ankle boot and the other is based on the 819 chukka boot, both with boat soles.  More styles from Quoddy soon to come.
