Tsíin Salmon Smock

$225.00

The Smock, with its delicate triple collar, is simple, elegant and light. One button and you are ready to go. In front, your silhouette can be seen through the printed scrim of hlG̱áhl/black brush strokes and resisted moons; a mysterious vision in the deep waters. On the back, two salmon are printed with the sun (k’úuk heart dot) reflected. As the smock swings, the pleat responds and the tsíin swims.

The Smock is Yáahl,Gúud,Tsai’s most popular garment. Flattering on every shape and size, it can transform any outfit. Pair with a fitted short or long dress, leggings or jeans, summer shorts or evening gown. Winterize it with boots and a long sleeved top to contrast its flow with fitted texture or wear it to the pool over your bathing suit!

Travels light and small, does not wrinkle and the pleat in the back is permanent, animating the Tsíin to swim wherever you go.

Nang jáadaas ḵ’uláagang. The woman is the boss. The Smock is sewn first . As a blank canvas, it is laid on the painted canvas of two Tsíin Salmon and a k’úuk/heart dot (sun). The painting is pinned in place and covered with the ‘star’ stroke painting in hlG̱áhl/black and clear dots (moons). Once heatset, the pleat becomes permanent, the sun travels through your heart and shines in front through a ‘moon’.

The final element in the Smock sculpture is you. The design comes alive only when worn. Polyester, upcycled material, wash, dry, no iron. Sewn in Vancouver, printed in Powell River

“I don’t think you can take the design and the art without taking the people as well….I think when that is done…..you have completely empty images conforming only to the formal aspects of the aart, without any feeling for the emotion behind them.” – Bill Reid Haida Artist, K’aadaas G̱aah – ḵ’iigawaay Clan ‘Curriculum Vitae 2’ (1983)
