Meet our designers!
Chérubin handmade leather moccasins have been popping up all over Pinterst, Facebook, and Instagram – and for good reason! The finest American made leather and the exceptionally detailed and skilled craftsmanship of local artisans are only part of the story; our ascent to the pinnacle of toddler fashion is due in large part to the amazing talent of our designers.
The brilliant Christine Hoog is the heartbeat behind Chérubin moccasins. As the creative director, Christine is involved in every step of creating these stylish moccasins, from concept of the shoe style to the last detail of the final stitching. As a devoted wife and mother of two exceptionally artistically talented girls, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! Christine is also the dynamic force behind the innovative printing processes, which reproduce patterns and designs in brilliant color and detail directly onto the highest quality American leather. This complex and state-of-the-art method ensures that each and every pair of Chérubin moccasins is perfect – just like your little one.
The award-winning Trenna Travis is the creator behind the inaugural collection of Chérubin moccasins. With her passion for design apparent from early childhood, Trenna blazed onto the fashion scene with a BFA in Fashion Illustration and Advertising. She quickly climbed the ranks as creative director and product and graphic designer before launching her own design services and interior design business – which include many of her own product lines. In addition to her collaboration with Chérubin, she partnered with Michael Miller Fabric for an exclusive textile line. Trenna was former contributing editor and stylist to Mary Engelbreit Home Companion and contributor to St. Louis At Home magazines.
Our newest collaboration is with the charming and sophisticated Cheree Berry Paper. From their inception in 2007, Cheree Berry Paper has grown from a premier stationary designer and printer to a highly sought after, multi-faceted graphic design firm. Their refined and energetic designs are clever and unexpected, and they have driven the entire paper printing industry to all new levels. Cheree is a graduate of Washington University with a BA in Fine Arts, and her natural talent was sought after by the premier graphic firm Pentagram. Soon afterwards, Cheree accepted the position of associate art director at Kate Spade in New York City. This naturally talented mother of three has her roots close to Sainte Geneviève, so the connection with Chérubin moccasins was an easy one, and the playful and polished prints matched the legacy printing and styles of Chérubin handmade leather moccasins, which are an exclusive collection of the century.
From the classic sophistication of our Black Diamond T-strap moccs to the whimsical patterns of our newest collection, Tell Me A Story, brilliant designers are the creative force that bring these exciting patterns to life.
We are proud to bring you our works of art, for your little work of art.
