There is a tremendous amount of meaning in all that we wear; materials we choose, the brands we support. It all makes an impact and reflects back on us as individuals. For these reasons, and others, it’s important we don’t don symbols and pieces that are inauthentic and that don’t pay homage to the cultures and people that created them.
Ginew, the only Native-owned denim brand, is devoted to authenticity and representation in our industry, but their offerings extend beyond their core collection of well-made workwear. They’ve begun to offer Native-made jewelry as well. Made by indigenous artists like Jeff DeMent and Jennifer Younger, a wide range of earrings, necklaces, rings, and cuffs are available for pre-order. Pieces are available in copper or silver and can feature accents of turquoise and red coral.
