The handmade moccasins from Lake George can now be seen with new funky colors and designs.

Itasca Leathergoods, formerly Itasca Moccasin, was purchased recently by Paul Kirkman. He is working to expand the business by opening additional retail stores in Minnesota and Wisconsin, along with selling products wholesale to boutiques and other shops.


Kirkman had been attempting to relocate to north central Minnesota from the Twin Cities for several years.
