First Nations Kwakkwaka’wakw – Jamie Gentry
She is a member of the Kwakkwaka’wakw Nation in British Columbia, Canada. Her style of moccasin-making is Apache-style.
Jamie is from the Kwakwaka’ wakw nation. She was born and raised in Victoria, BC. She comes from a family of talented artists, who over time helped her discover her passion for fabrics and sewing.
Eight years ago she created a shop called “Love In Everything”, mostly out of a desire to find a way to express her creativity. At the time her main focus was to create fun, fashionable, yet comfortable items for children, with a huge emphasis on Upcycling/Recycling. She feels there is an abundance of discarded items just waiting to be transformed into something amazing, and she for one loved the challenge, as well as the feeling of knowing that she was saving one less item from the dump.
Recently she has fulfilled a long time dream of making moccasins. Footwear has always been her passion (some may say an obsession) of hers. She loves that she can now create her own footwear. It has turned into a very therapeutic practice for her as well. She finds it very meditative to be in her sewing studio, all by herself.
The intentions she has behind everything she makes, is to make it with soul, and meaning. While she works, she thinks of the person who she is making it for, or the person who will one day discover her work. She believes it creates a connection that has been lost over the years.
