Giving Back Artfully. Feel great knowing that 1% of all Heidi The Artist sales are given 50/50 to POW (Protect Our Winters) & the SLCC (Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre). Because here at Heidi we want to support the amazing work being done by these two impactful organizations.
My art and design is a natural extension of who I am and where I live. My paintings reflect the abundance of natural beauty here in the Sea to Sky corridor and my Made in Canada clothing always strives to be comfortable, unique, sustainable, high quality and in alignment with the slow fashion movement. When choosing fabrics I favour recycled materials and natural fibres such as bamboo, hemp, organic cotton, organic linen and silk. Heidi clothing is made to last. These are not pieces that you will throw away after 5 washes because they're falling apart. You should expect to love your clothing for years!
The Heidi line was born when I was at home full time raising my two boys. I had been a high school art teacher prior to becoming a mom, and was looking for a creative outlet. Once I discovered how to print fabric with my paintings, I was hooked, and the rest is history! Endless ideas and inspiration keep me excited to move forward. I hope you enjoy my shop.
And P.S....what is Slow Fashion anyways?
“Slow fashion is the deliberate choice to buy better-quality items less often. When purchases are made, they’re environmentally and ethically conscious rather than trend-driven. The garments are durable and lend themselves to repairs, not disposal. Slow fashion is also transparent: Buyers know where their clothes are coming from, and items are often handmade by artisans. Consider it the “farm to table” of the fashion world.” - Digiday
