SEWCIALIZE is delighted to announce a collaboration between Kwakiutl' Artist David Mungo Knox, a member of the Kwakiulth First Nations and the great-grandson of Chief Mungo Martin, and Marie Lavallee from both Cree and Metis First Nations.
In 2017 David - who hails from a rich line of Heritary Chiefs, Master Carvers and Skilled Dancers - and Marie ventured into a collaboration by printing onto fabric David's original wood carvings. David's traditional wood carvings can be found in galleries all around the world.
Each pair of leggings is designed by Marie highlighting the traditional elements and shapes of Kwakiutl Culture like these leggings, which feature David's hand carved wood 'Thunder Bird' mask. In Kwakiutl culture the Thunder Bird lives in the sky and is known to cause thunder when he flaps his wings and shoots lightning from his eyes.
As always, SEWCIALIZE is driven to create meaningful products that inspire conversation.
Leggings are made from compression fit EcoPoly Spandex fabric manufactured in Canada. Compression fit leggings hug in all the right places and shape to your own personal body type. Our ultra stretch fabric holds shape even after multiple wearings. The two inch high double fold waistband adds extra comfort.
SEWCIALIZE leggings are easy to care for - simply pop them into the washer with cold water and either hang to dry or toss them into the dryer. Don't worry, the vivid print will never fade, due to the solvent free water based inks used by SEWCIALIZE.
