            HOW TO MEASURE

            BUST : Take this measurement while wearing a bra, ideally the one you intend to wear most of the time. Place the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust. Keep your arms down when recording your full bust measurement.

            WAIST : Place the measuring tape at the narrowest part of your torso (your natural waist). Be careful not to squeeze too tight to allow a little give and make the measurement. 

            HIPS : With your feet together, place the measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips. Ensure you'll have enough room to move comfortably and make the measurement. 

            INSEAM :

            1. Start with a pair of pants and/or leggings you already have that fit you well and lay them flat on the floor.
            2. Carefully measure the length from the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
            3. THIS NUMBER IS YOUR INSEAM. Use this number to help you choose your next pair of great-fitting pants. 
            4. Start shopping by your inseam!

            Story of our Héritage designs

            We are proud to walk tall with our cousin nations and want to keep sharing our beautiful indigenous stories with you. 

            Catherine’s Vine print

            The Grey Nuns first introduced silk embroidery to the Red River Métis in 1844. Métis women used silk embroidery to decorate their clothing. They established a mission school in Ile-à-La Crosse where Catherine was born. Andréanne’s Métis ancestor Catherine, embroidered in the « Lake Winnipeg small flower style ». This style was generally made up of tiny sinuous flowers, long leaves, and tendrils. The flowers were often rosettes, layered in shades of reds and pinks. From samples of Catherine’s embroidery, still owned by her family, Andréanne was inspired to create the design she calls Catherine’s Vine.

            Spirit of The North print

            The Aboriginal Plains people used Eagle feathers in ceremonies as a symbol of respect and healing.  In the Indigenous culture, the Eagle is the symbol of Love in the Seven Sacred Teachings.⁠ To the Inuit people, the Polar Bear is regarded as the embodiment of the spirit of the North, an animal that possesses ancient wisdom.⁠ In true Métis fashion, David Albert captured the beauty and essence of both, using the bold Haida style in his design to pay homage to his Indigenous West Coast cousins.⁠

            La Flèche print

            The Métis people helped shape the Canada of today, mainly in terms of the expansion of the west. The Métis became the link between the First Nations and their European allies, assisted by their wives who translated the native languages and helped resolve any cultural issues that arose. Métis Artist David Albert created this arrow (Flèche) to pay tribute to the trading activities between the Métis and First Nations people . The Métis were, in fact, astute business people. The flower represents the Métis, also known as the "flower beadwork people," and the arrow represents the First Nations and the connection between them.

            Raven of Life print

            Raven can transform himself into anything. In Native culture, the Raven is the most powerful of mythical creatures. Traditionally, he symbolises creation, transformation, it gave people fire and water, placed the trees and grass over the land and put the sun and moon in the sky. This design, by Aboriginal Métis artist David Albert, portrays the Raven becoming a branch of life.

            Catherine’s Vine embroidery

            The Grey Nuns first introduced silk embroidery to the Red River Métis in 1844. Métis women used silk embroidery to decorate their clothing. They established a mission school in Ile-à-La Crosse where Catherine was born. Andréanne’s Métis ancestor Catherine, embroidered in the « Lake Winnipeg small flower style ».

            The Red River Floral Embroidery

            Representing harmony and pride, The Red River Floral was derived from traditional floral beadwork which is distinctively ‘Métis’. The Métis were known as the ‘Flower Beadwork People’. This print was created by David Albert, a Métis artist from Winnipeg who merged European floral designs with The Red River traditional flower (center one) which creates a connection between culture and earth.


            Northern Willow

            The Aboriginal people used the bark of the willow to relieve pain and fever. They chewed or boiled a tea from the willow's leaves or inner bark to relieve fever or other minor pain like toothaches, headaches, or arthritis. The willow is often given the nickname "toothache tree".  Modern medicine has discovered that willow bark contains the medicinal extract, salicin, or salicylic acid (salix is Latin for willow). This chemical is the active ingredient in common aspirin. David Albert, a Métis artist, selected this important element of nature to create this design.

            Fabric Care


            We recommend these washing instructions for ALL of our fabric blends.

            FOR BEST RESULTS:
            • Wash cold, delicate cycle.
            • Hang or lay flat to dry.
            • Garments may shrink a max 3-4% if washed and dried at hot temperatures.
            • If your garment is colour blocked, the best method is to wash the garment in cold water and immediately remove to hang / lay flat to dry.

            FOR ALL PRINTED and EMBROIDERED garments: Turn inside out before washing, wash in COLD WATER, delicate cycle. This will help to keep the colour and detail lasting longer.

            * Viscose from Bamboo / organic cotton is as easy to care for as any cotton t-shirt, with one exception: it is heavy when wet. Laying flat to dry when possible will help eliminate stretch when wet garments are heavy. We recommend washing on the delicate cycle with similar soft garments (no rough denim or your child’s Velcro gym shorts).
