Sapling & Flint
Corn Bred Long Skirt
The "Corn Bred" design by Teyotsihstokwáthe Dakota Brant, is in honour of Haudenosaunee corn growing heritage. The Haudenosaunee people received their corn growing culture at the time of Creation; our ancestor Skywoman fell from the Skyworld to the Waterworld, carrying seeds of many plants with her. She along with her daughter and grandsons, the Twin Creators, were integral to the Creation of Turtle Island, where the Haudenosaunee have planted her seeds and maintained their way of life ever since. The Brant family continues to grow Haudenosaunee corn and other crops at their home in Six Nations Territory.
The Corn Bred Long Skirt is shared on a formidable heavy satin. This smooth & resilient fabric shares its design vibrantly, accentuating any outfit it is paired with. It is a 100% polyester plain weave fabric whose vibrant colours will not fade when treated properly.
This fabric is proudly designed, milled & printed in unceded Mohawk Territory, supporting Indigenous & Canadian small business partnerships.
Care Instructions: Machine wash cold water with a phosphate free detergent. Machine dry on medium heat. Iron on synthetic setting. May shrink after the first wash.
