Capture

Eighth  Generation is a Native-owned and operated company based in Seattle, Washington. It was founded in 2008 when Louie Gong (Nooksack/Chinese/French/Scottish) — a Native artist, activist and educator widely known for merging traditional Coast Salish art with influences from his urban environment to make strong statements about identity — started customizing shoes in his living room. Now the first Native-owned company to ever produce wool blankets, Eighth Generation is a proud participant in the global economy with the mission of creating opportunities for community-based cultural artists who — like Louie a short 8 years ago — struggled to meet demands for handmade cultural art.
CaptureSalish Style Northwest Coast Contemporary Native art wear by Native artists. Salish Style is a modern lifestyle brand that embodies the artistic spirit of Northwest Native American and First Nations design and culture. Based in Seattle, Coast Salish owned, we collaborate with artists throughout the Pacific Northwest from numerous Native American tribes and First Nations to create clothing inspired by our cultural heritages as well as contemporary culture, that stand out and share a story. Each of our nations maintain their own distinct art, language, and traditions, however we all share strong connections with the land, waters, and wildlife found in the Northwest region that we and our ancestors call home. We pride ourselves on making meaningful products that not only exemplify our lifestyle, but promote recognition, preservation, cultural appreciation and authenticity of Native art in a manner that is accessible for all.
