Tooth is very nice. The chain feels a bit flimsy and the clasp is very hard to open/possibly partly broken? I'll still wear it. It is a very pretty piece.

About

Rustic living in a modern world.

Flattail Furs was created Mark Valente and Laura Green 2 years ago, but their story starts long before that. In 1995, when Laura departed Beaver Island leaving her summer fling behind, neither one of them imagined their romance would pick back up 15 years later. Mark, a native of Michigan, moved to Beaver Island in 1978. One of the last true Renaissance men, he lived off the land, trapping and hunting, creating utilitarian pieces from the fur. Laura spent most of her adult years in Chicago, following the restaurant scene. A chance run-in on her return to the island in 2010 sparked not only love, but the creation of Flattail Furs. With Mark’s skill as a furrier and Laura’s citygirl fashion sense, the hats, mittens, and earmuffs took on a style all their own. In addition to the fur, the peacocks and hens they raise on the island provide beautiful feathers for the earrings and pendants Laura creates herself. Everything they sell is sourced from the island and handmade.

Shop members

  • Mark Valente

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    Mark moved to the island from the city not knowing much about the outdoors. It was from his love of th woods and wildlife that he taught himself how to trap, later on how to sew, and eventually he began creating winter wear.

  • Laura Green

    Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator

    After spending 10 years in Chicago, Laura was ready to return to her roots in Michigan. Laura enjoys taking raw materials and using her city savvy to design original and creative pieces.

  • Porter & Jetta

    Owner, Trapping/Tracking Partner & Protege

    Porter is a 12 yr old pound dog with the nose of a true hunting dog. He will hunt or track pretty much anything asked of him. Jetta is a 2 yr old pound dog who is Porter's over eager apprentice. Porter is patiently trying to educate her.

Thanks for checking out the store! Flat Tail Furs is a small operation run out of Beaver Island, Michigan. All of the beaver and coyote fur is locally trapped and the fox accents come from either trapped or hand raised fox. I do all the trapping and sewing myself.
