A local Vancouver-based company Peau de Loup, together with local Musqueam designer Debra Sparrow have designed a special scarf for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Dubbed the Unity Scarf, it is comprised of two sides: one side features CANADA in big bold letters and the other side features the customized Salish design. The scarf retails for $38.
Co-designer Debra Sparrow is self-taught in Salish design and created the logo for the Canadian men’s and women’s hockey teams for the 2010 Olympics and Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver.
“I am honoured to share these intricate designs with Peau de Loup for the National Women’s team so that the world has an opportunity to see the relationship between all the people in Canada… I hold my hands up to all Women Athletes who have come to compete at the world level… Welcome!”
