Red Cedar Woman - Jessica Silvey

Purple Banner #

Red Cedar Woman is an Indigenous-owned and operated company, we focus on the creation of unique, authentic Indigenous items. I weave traditional and contemporary cedar bark baskets, hats, mats, Salish Blankets and throw pillows using wool dyed with traditional food and medicine plants. We also offer basket weaving workshops to various learning institutions throughout the lower mainland. Last year we introduced our line of bath and body products and just recently our exciting new line of Sage Blends for smudging your body/spirit and home.

We are grateful to be able to live our lives using the natural resources within our traditional territory or in trade from neighbouring nations just as our ancestors have since time immemorial.
