Let me introduce myself!
My name is Sydelle (Ipnaamawax), and I am the maker here at Kanaine. I come from the Cayuse, Walla Walla, and Yakama (enrolled) people of Oregon and Washington. I am a full-time mom of 3 girls, and PhD student in Public Health at Oregon State University when I'm not making fine goods and apparel.
I strive to create designs that cross the line between the wild western lifestyle I grew up with and the street style I love. Each piece is sourced, cut, crafted, packaged and shipped from my home studio here in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.
I love creating, collaborating, and every part of making handcrafted goodness. The business has given me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, experience new and exciting places, and provide for my family while pursuing my doctoral studies; not only does it provide stability, but a vision of what can be accomplished with hard work and persistence, just like my mom and dad gave to me.
Thank you for being a part of this journey, and drop a line anytime if you have further questions or ideas you think Kanaine would be interested in.
