Welcome to our online gallery where you can admire and shop! Currently, we are solely E-Commerce, however we have a workshop in Victoria B.C. where we make our beautiful art. Inspired by the nature and art culture of the West Coast, beautiful Indigenous art and design turns a new leaf with contemporary styles exuding a touch of modern. A collaboration with Mona Elliott’s fashion eye and Rande Cook’s First Nation's artistic talent brings art and fashion together. We feature original designs in jewelry, art, clothing and all that delights the senses. We’re also a family based business and will be including our children‘s artistic talents soon! Please visit us often as we’re a new site and growing everyday!
