This design was created by Louie Gong (Nooksack) after researching traditional Coast Salish weaving, and he often refers to it as a "collaboration with the ancestors."
Although many of our products are created using modern technology, it was very important to Louie that he create a design that could be replicated with traditional Coast Salish weaving methods.
Coast 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.

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.
