Announcement FREE U.S. SHIPPING ON ALL CHOKERS! Welcome to Cherokee Lodge! We hope you will like our completely handmade items. My husband got started making Native American style items while on his search to find his Cherokee roots. He would make them for me, and people would always ask me where I got them. It happened so often that he started making things for other people and it has finally come to this. Current, there is a 6-8 week lead time for boots and moccasins.

Received item after overlong wait, original patterns of feet for fit never returned, product poorly sized, will not be used.

Never received any communication from the buyer until this review. Buyer agreed to the wait time for the moccasins, which shipped only 2 weeks late due to family emergency. She never asked for the pattern to be returned, as it is not customary to return them. Otherwise, we would have. Our work is guaranteed. Had she told us there was a problem with the fit, we would have gladly reworked them or refunded her upon their return. We still don't know how they don't fit properly as this is the first we'd heard about it. We can't fix a problem we don't know exists. Will still be glad to refund her if she returns them. As you can see by our reviews, we have never had this problem before. Communication is key when you buy custom made, yet we received virtually none from this buyer.

Well packaged and the moccasins are a good fit, very comfortable. Definitely a 5 star purchase.

I have not received the item I ordered and paid for yet. I am keeping faith that I will receive the item. I haven't heard anything lately, they seem like very nice people!
Following a Path
Mark and I have known each other since high school. To get back to his roots, his Cherokee father and grandfather taught him the old ways of making items. He made a hobby of making Native American style regalia, clothing, moccasins and jewelry. All our items are culture specific, not tribal specific.
He'd started making things for me. As time went on and I'd be wearing something he'd made, people would comment on it. It didn't take long before people began asking him to make things for them. So here we are.
Beth and Mark
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
We're a husband and wife team who decided to start a business, so this was the natural choice. Don't let Mark's Mother's German-Irish face fool you. His Father was pure Cherokee. Making Native American regalia has been a hobby of his for a long time.

Additional policies and FAQs
FOR MOCCASINS: We prefer it when you send us a tracing of your feet for a custom fit. When you trace them please have someone else take the tracing. You need to be standing with your full weight on your feet to get a proper fit. We also need your Foot measurements (trace your foot, then measure your foot from toe to heel and around the ball of your foot (again, standing on your full weight). For boot moccasins we need an instep measurement (Where the foot and ankle meet) ankle, and calf measurement, and the height you want. Also, remember if you will be wearing jeans to measure your legs while you are wearing them.
FOR SHIRTS: We need neck, chest, and waist measurements, The length from where the collar starts to where you want the shirt to end, and the sleeve length. You can use a long sleeved shirt of your own to get the sleeve and shirt length.
FOR PANTS: We need waist, hips, and inseam. You can use a pair of pants to measure your inseam. A thigh and calf measurement would also help.
*** NOTE: NO CASH REFUNDS ON CUSTOM WORK OR SIGNS OF WEAR ON GENERIC MADE MOCCASINS. EXCHANGES OR CREDIT FOR STORE MERCHANDISE ONLY. I will work very hard to make sure all customers are satisfied.
We keep all our items wrapped in plastic but this is a smoking/pet friendly household
