Designed by Louie Gong (Nooksack), this eagle merges influences from Coast Salish art and Americana tattoo style. By drawing from traditional tattoo, this eagle references the same symbolism as the American eagle - strength, leadership and freedom. However, by merging it with Coast Salish art, Louie intends to skew the eagle's meaning toward indigenous strength, leadership and freedom. In doing this, the design symbolizes the much needed update to the "American dream."
Made in our Seattle studio with two vibrant abalone inlays on beautiful maple wood, this totally unique phone case stands out - and way above - the rest.
This beautiful case includes a matte black plastic bumper that snaps perfectly into place, providing an added layer of protection for your phone. The inside of each special edition case is signed by Louie Gong.
*Since this case is 100% authentic wood, the wood grain, patterns and knots will vary with each individual skin. Your case is unlike anyone else’s in the world, literally.
Louie Gong (Nooksack), founder of Eighth Generation, is a self-taught artist who was raised by his grandparents in the Nooksack tribal community in northwest Washington. He got his start by painting cultural art on shoes, but realized that creating one-of-a-kind pieces did not provide a sustainable pathway to success, and began applying his artwork to accessibly-priced products. Louie’s unique style merges traditional Coast Salish art with influences from his mixed heritage and urban environment to create work that resonates widely across communities and cultures.
