From the Stó:lō nation in Chilliwack, B.C., Indigenous fashion designer Sandra Froher creates ethereal, abstract work taking many forms, including original paintings, spectacular fashions, and nature jewelry. Froher is an avid creator and “energy artist” who finds inspiration in nature and strives to harness living colour within her boundless creative practice. Connecting to her Indigenous roots through her work, Froher forages and gathers organic materials for the eco pigment process. Every garment is one-of-a-kind, made by hand with a hand dyeing process on various 100% silk making results, patterns, and colours purely natural. Froher uses nature and botanical ingredients such as Eucalyptus, Japanese Maple, Rose Petals, Blackberry Leaf, Rose Hip, Lavender, Wild Flower, Wild Chicory, Cherry Tree, Dandelion, Cannabis, and much more! “Let’s celebrate nature together.” - S.F.
