While visiting East Africa I was struck by the similarities
of the tribal Maasai artwork, design and colors with the
North American Pueblo tribes. Throughout the world, art
is a voice that expresses beauty, history and aspirations of
its creator. It brings the realization that we are all still tribes
and are interconnected by our humanity.
Having gained inspiration from that realization, I wanted to create a literal thread around the world with a visual wearable product to acknowledge that we have a commonality that is undeniable.
A portion of our profits will be donated back to the artisans/communities in the regions whose art has inspired Tribalwear designs.
Our hope is to encourage the continuation of indigenous arts and cultures.
