ONE OF A KIND PARTNERSHIP
INDIGO ARROWS x FREED is a story of two female entrepreneurs, from different backgrounds, coming together through their shared passion for beautiful design with an impact.
This partnership is unique and one of the first of its kind, between the Indigenous owned business, Indigo Arrows, and the female-led/Jewish owned business, FREED. Destiny Seymour of Indigo Arrows specializes in creating minimalistic, Anishinaabe patterns inspired by ancient pottery and bone tools of her ancestors. Marissa Freed of FREED specializes in high quality manufacturing and sustainable design.
Justin Louis (Nehiyaw) co-founder of Vancouver based SECTION 35 partnered up with FREED to redesign the iconic FREED coat and Mini Tote inspired by his artistry and Cree ancestry.
I always envisioned the leopard print to stand out and be bold and I designed this coat with that same vision. The Cree syllabics boldly make up the print and carry the message that message from our ancestors of living the good life.
