The Native Indians of Vancouver Island, B.C Canada have been knitting sweaters since the 1800’s. We have been hand crafting these famous sweaters since 1979 and have used original designs which evolved from the Indian culture. We also continue to develop new contemporary designs with historical significance and timely appeal.
Legend has it that on 1534, Jacques Cartier crossed the Atlantic Ocean to reach North American, He asked the Indians he encountered what the place was called. “KANATA,” they replied. The word meant “village” in their language. From that time on Cartier called the land CANADA.
