The Wild + Free Line is a collab by Heather Galea of Modest Makings (local Manitoulin Island artist) and The Island Jar (local whole food market and café on the island). This natural canvas tote bag clothing is made in Canada by EcoEquitable in Ottawa. EcoEquitable is "a non-profit organization providing a bridge to social and economic integration for people in need, especially immigrant women, while greening the community. EcoEquitable offers intensive 5-month sewing programs to immigrant women - allowing them to join the Canadian textile industry, by selling recycled fabric in our boutique, by offering contract sewing for conference bags and small designer lines, as well as repairs and alterations on site."
The design was inspired by summertime on Manitoulin – when time slows down, the waters are cool and clear, and the fields are awash in colour thanks to the great variety of flowers that grow wild all over our beautiful island.
