I put this on my Louis Vuitton purse, original monogram print and it blends perfectly with it! Looks like it was made for it!

I live in Minnesota and these earmuffs are amazing. They won't give you the dreaded hat hair but they absolutely keep your ears warm. I love them. I've had a lot of compliments on them but be prepared for some people to crack a joke or two. I'm very pleased with my purchase and would buy from this seller again.

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.

    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.

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.
