AMERICANA’s Blog Is 2 Years Old!

Yep, that’s right! We’ve been at it here on the blog for a little over 2 years. We’ve done our best to investigate & celebrate the origins of uniquely American clothing and brands, with a little American lifestyle thrown in along the way.

You can see how it all got started by reading our first post here.  Since that time, we’ve dropped the Swedish, learned a lot and had a great time hearing from all of you.  Plus, we piloted and then actually opened our business in Sweden and had y’all along for the ride the whole way. What fun it has been!

So let’s celebrate 2 years of our blog!  We’re happy we’ve been here these two years and hope you are too.

Cowichan Sweaters

Cowichan sweaters have been made by the indigenous Salish women of southern Vancouver Island, Canada for centuries.  The sweaters take their namesake from the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island.

Each sweater is made from 2 kilograms of raw, pure wool which retains the lanolin and waterproofs the sweater.  Because of the lanolin content, the sweater should not be washed too often and can last for up to 80 years.

Cowichan sweaters are a distinctive Salish ethnic art form. The motifs include eagles, deer, birds, trees, bears, whales, salmon, snowflakes, waves and stripes which are prominent symbols in the culture of the Salish people.

Cowichan sweaters are especially favored by curling sport enthusiasts.  The Cowichan sweater was also made popular by Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski in the Coen brothers’ film The Big Lebowski.  They were also seen at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

___________________________________________________________________________Give a unique gift they’ll treasure for many years!

AMERICANA Classic Vintage has a massive selection of Cowichan & other handmade thick-knit sweaters at our store on Gamla Brogatan 23 in Stockholm.
