NATIVE AMERICAN DESIGNED + MADE IN USA + ALL-COTTON Water Remembers Bandana: Ginew + Sebastian Ebarb Collaboration
Artist Statement: "In collaborating with Ginew, we wanted to create a series speaking to water and its meaning. I wanted to show water's beauty and speak to how it remembers us and our kin. Water holds us up and keeps us moving forward. It flows through us and our rivers in our lakes, our oceans, our land. We are alive because of it. Mixing text and symbols of the ancient snapping turtle with waves I looked to create a nostalgic design for all to wear and remember water in the way it remembers us."
