The Backbone cowl is meant to be worn as a statement piece. It is easy to wear and is hand loomed on a knitting machine. It is fully fashioned to create a cozy double layer. The band is knit on the outside layer which can be adjusted in its placement. This is an artful piece and is definitely my favorite design.

Maggie Thompson (Fond du Lac Ojibwe) was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Textiles at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2013. As a textile artist and designer she derives her inspiration from the history of her Ojibwe heritage, exploring family history as well as themes and subject matter of the broader Native American experience. Thompson’s work calls attention to its materiality pushing the viewer’s traditional understanding of textiles. She explores materials in her work by incorporating multimedia elements such as photographs, beer caps and 3D-printed objects.
