A recent collaboration on our Treasure Dress with an Alaska-based brand, has brought it to our attention for the first time that this dress shares many similarities with the Native Alaskan kuspuk. Yes, there are similarities between the Treasure Dress and the kuspuk and we acknowledge this. Our collaboration and the subsequent conversation is allowing us to learn more about this important garment and we want to share those resources with you.
Here are a few of many Indigenous designers and makers of kuspuks. If you have additional resources and makers you would like to see added, please reach out and let us know.
