About Turtle Island Moccasins


Greetings to all our relations!
Richard and Bhavani Polvino of Turtle Island Moccasins (a.k.a. Earth Island Footwear) welcome you to our family of over 3,200 satisfied custom shoe wearers in just about every state of the union and countries throughout the world.

Richard is a second generation of custom shoe, boot and moccasin makers.
Bhavani is a 2nd generation beader, bag and purse maker.  

We are into our 3rd generation of footwear specialists. Collectively, we are now over 15,000 pairs made.

Artist is not what I do ... artist is what I am.


We at Turtle Island look at the crafting of leather footwear as
'A Service to Pleasure your Feet'.

We also stand in and beside our product everyday and through thick and thin, with up to a 15 yr warranty on the leather uppers - depending on the type of leather and the application of the footwear.

Our footwear is very popular as historical footwear, medieval reenactors and for rennaisance fairs.

We are very picky about quality control and pride ourselves in creating each pair.

I do realize that this limits us as to the number of shoes or boots that we can produce, about 120-150 pairs per year - depending on circumstances, which are never in our control.  Our shoes are made to last with quality ingredients.

Turtle Island is a GREEN COMPANY

We live totally off the grid, making our own electricity, and have built our own straw bale home.
