"Salish Pattern" Crew Socks

  • Temporarily out of stock! Re-stock coming Friday 12/21.

    Adapted from the beautiful "Salish Pattern" Wool Blanket design, these vibrant crew socks are the perfect way to rock bold Coast Salish art on the go!

    This design was created by Louie Gong (Nooksack) after researching traditional Coast Salish weaving. Although our socks are created using modern technology, it was very important to Louie that he create a design that could be replicated with traditional Salish weaving methods.

    Salish art is rarely represented in contemporary textiles, and Louie is proud to help push this particular, often overlooked form to the forefront of Native art and product offerings.

    • One size fits all
    • 58% combed cotton, 22% nylon, 16% spandex, 4% elastic
    • Designed by Louie Gong (Nooksack)
    • Features arch support band, reinforced toe and heel, and hand-linked toe closure
  • 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.

    Thank you for supporting Inspired Natives, not "Native-inspired".
