American-Made Start to Finish: Chérubin Shoes

Nestled in the heart of the Midwest is the historic town of Sainte Geneviève, the home of Chérubin Shoes. American artisans, crafting an American product from American materials. Start to finish, each pair of genuine leather moccasins are truly the result of the American dream.

Join us for a behind the scenes look at what it means to be “Made in the USA” – and why we’re so proud to share it with you.

American Workers:

Since the turn of the 18th century, when Sainte Geneviève was a new settlement, the local artisans took pride in their crafts and breathtaking architecture – several buildings from the late 1700’s and early 1800’s are still standing today, registered with the National Register of Historic Places. In the 1930s, Sainte Geneviève became famous for the Art Colony, which transformed the entire nation’s view of the Midwest through paintings. Continuing in the tradition of skill and excellence, every pair of genuine leather moccasins is crafted by hand with the same attention to detail as those ancient artisans. From the first cut of the leather to the final stitch, each pair of moccasins is started and finished one at a time.

American Materials:

Of all the materials available to hand craft our moccasins, only the finest leather will do. Soft micro-suede allows tiny toes to feel the surface and balance, while protecting them from slipping or hot pavement. Using only 100% American leather that is tested and certified for infants and children, our soft leather uppers offer protection and style! Our Wild About Hue collections feature vegetable-tanned leathers from the renown Horween Leathers Company. Rich colors are dyed throughout using Horween’s specialized technique – the same one they have been using for over 100 years. Soft and secure – only the best for your little cherub.

American Dreams:

Based on creativity and the finest materials, the art of hand crafted excellence is a tradition that Chérubin is proud to continue. From the imagination of our illustrious designers come bold and fresh patterns, playful and whimsical. Drawing from her history, award-winning designer Trenna Travis brings the brilliant colors and vibrant patterns of the Southwest to life in our Boho Bebe collection. We are excited to share our newest collaboration with Cheree Berry Paper; a fresh collection of whimsical and playful patterns that are sure to bring a smile to your face and warm your heart.

From a conception of patterns to slipping that pair of moccasins on your little one’s precious feet, Chérubin is proud to be an American company and we’re thrilled that you allow us to continue to share our craft with you.
