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.
