Top 10 Home Goods

From the affordable, to the swanky, we’ve come up with a list of Native-made items to spruce up your home space. 

If you are like me, you are nesting and investing in the spaces where you now spend most of your day. For example, in the past year, I’ve purchased Native-made art prints, pillows, candles, food goods, linen napkins, blankets, and more, sprucing up my kitchen, living room, bedroom, and even bathroom. 

I never really appreciated how much home decor can enrich your life.

Artist Feature: Vosq Co

We are excited to share another artist spotlight: Vosq Clothing Co.  Our pal and the owner, Sean, explained, "Vosq Co. was founded in concept, on the grounds of the Pechanga Indian Reservation. The theme then was to create a brand my family and ancestors would be proud of, as well as a brand that my friends and community could relate to." 

It's always a pleasure to work with Sean - he's got this nice and easy-going positive energy, always down to create an exclusive design with us and partner up with projects.

Top 10 Gift Boxes and Sets

Valentine’s Day is weird (no I’m not jaded), but whatever (I swear, I’m not jaded!). I do agree that we should celebrate our loved ones - and this day does create time to do that, so that's good.

But when I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of pink hearts and those cartoony "Valentines" we were forced to give and receive in grade school whether we wanted to participate or not (EVERYONE SHALL GET A CARD DAMMIT). Later in life, I was coerced into thinking Valentine’s Day was when a guy either A) gave you flowers and chocolates, or B) HE SIMPLY HATED YOU.

Artist Feature: Breeze

Over a decade ago, I had the fine opportunity to meet a future friend: Thomas Marcus. He was interested in the graffiti street arts scene and went by the name Breeze. I preferred to call him Thomas Marcus (it had a ring to it). One night, I barely met him, but he was cool, and I hopped into his van (LOL) after a Heard Indian Market, and we, along with his buddy Hendrix (yes, related), went off to hit up some art parties. OH THE GOOD OL' DAYS.

Top 10 Scarves for All Seasons

Welcome to our top ten list for Native-made scarves. Whether you are battling the cold winter or accessorizing a summer outfit, we've listed our favorites below. 

Please share this list with your networks, along with your favorite Native-made scarves in your own collections. I own scarves by Virgil Ortiz, Jamie Okuma, Maggie Thompson, Sarah Agaton Howes, and more. The scarves I own are limited edition and no longer available, so I feel rather special when I wear them, like, "Yes, this is a classic."
