Marshall Fabrics plans to release a new pattern by a different Indigenous artist every 6 months
Aug 19, 2022
Colourful fabric patterns that weave culture with creativity are hitting the shelves of a Winnipeg store.
Marshall Fabrics is commissioning Indigenous artists to create designs to be carried in its stores. A new pattern by a different artist will be released every six months in limited edition rollouts.
“It feels like a dream come true,” said Manitoba-born artist Carrie Okemaw, the first artist to have her creation printed on the 500-metre-long bolts of cotton.
“I need to see it to believe it, ’cause I’m still in a state of shock,” said the self-taught designer, who has ties to both Manto Sipi Cree Nation and the Ojibway community of Berens River First Nation in eastern Manitoba.
