What does a fur dealer-bootmaker do? Although you may be familiar with the trade of bootmaker, a fur dealer may be more of a mystery. Yet the trade is associated with fur, a natural resource inseparable from this country’s history. Mario Bilodeau invite you to discover the trade of fur dealer-bootmaker and present the star product of their skill and knowledge, the Bilodeau boot. While on the premises, you will be invited to observe and question the artisans and their work team. A tour of their workshop will demystify this intriguing trade and answer questions such as How does the artisan choose his furs? Are some furs better than others to make boots?
