Our Beginning

We are a small family owned business operating and handmaking Fur Products in Winnipeg Manitoba


  Our beginning started 45 years ago in Ukraine, when our grandfather/ Dad Alexandre Chekhhman began making fur hats in Kiev in 1976. But in 1991, 45-year-old Alexandre Chekhman immigrated from Ukraine to Canada to start a new and better life for his family. With him, he brought 15 years of fur crafting experience and in 1994, opened up Shekhman Furs in downtown Winnipeg Manitoba with his family.

Since 1994, Alexandre Chekhman and his family have been handcrafting fur hats, headbands, mittens, gauntlets, Parka hoods, and mukluks. We have been suppling local Manitobans, Canadians, police departments and anyone who wants to stay warm in the cold weather.

Now with 45 years of experience, Alexandre is locally renown for making the best Fur hats, mittens, and gauntlets. So, you can expect only the best from Shekhman Furs.

We have a store located on the second floor of the Forks Market in Winnipeg Manitoba if you’d like to come see us in person. You can also find us at Winnipeg’s Festival Du Voyageur every February!
