We were taught the traditional arts from our Mother who in turned learned from her Mother, our Maternal Grandmother Annie Hotch of Klukwan.
When making our traditional robes we hand sew each robe taking approximately 2 weeks to complete customized robes. We use a wool-blended felt and Mother of Peral buttons for our robes and cover the heading with fur and leather lacing for the ties. Our robes are on commision, the average price we charge is $750.00 USD depending on the material used and includes shipping and insurance for our products. We have various peices on hand already made but will gladly custom make our Wool Robes with any applique you may desire.
