FAQ

AM I ABLE TO WEAR GINEW IF I AM NOT NATIVE AMERICAN?

ABSOLUTELY! We designed the Ginew collection to share with anyone who will respectfully and thoughtfully participate in our vision. We aim to increase Indigenous visibility in the fashion ecosystem by sharing our culture(s), creativity and designs. When you buy and wear Ginew, you are joining a band of like-minded people (Indigenous & allies) in the effort to illuminate contemporary, Indigenous presence...like a quiet resistance that whispers (“WE’RE STILL HERE!!!”).

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT NON-NATIVES WEARING GINEW?

We love it when people participate in the Ginew dream by wearing our designs and collection. When anyone buys and wears Ginew, they are accelerating possibilities for Indigenous people in the greater fashion ecosystem. Ginew aims to open doors and provide opportunity, especially for Indigenous youth. Each purchase allows Ginew to grow and give back - be it through donations directly to organizations we believe in and/or incubating the talent of Indigenous youth to pursue their dreams. Each purchase matters and makes a difference. We are all in this together.
