    Cowichan hand knitted cardigan w. bronc motifs on front and back in navy

    Inspired by the Cowichan-style sweater characterized by the heavy knit, shawl collar and distinctive design, which usually includes geometric shapes or wildlife such as whales, eagles, deer, etc. If you’re not familiar with the term Cowichan, you’re almost certainly familiar with the style. These sweaters have been worn by everyone from Steve McQueen to The Dude in The Big Lebowski. More than just chunky knits with expressive designs, however, they’ve also got some deep history. True Cowichans are made by Coast Salish knitters in British Columbia, Canada. As the story goes, the sweater style comes out of a cultural exchange in the 1850s, between natives in the Cowichan Valley and European settlers. Our take has a more 70s emphasis and incorporates two smaller bronc motifs on the front and one large bronc on the back, to add a more western lean to it. Instead of the zipped front commonly used for this sweater style we opted for real leather braided buttons.
