About

Northmade Minnesota Clothing Company - Local Minnesota Clothing

Our humble beginnings as MPLS / STP Clothing Co began back in 2012 and, since, we’ve been creating clothing, goods and initiatives for people, both near and far, with an up north state of mind. We’ve changed our name and moved across town but our products are still designed right here in St. Paul and always made responsibly.

We’re t-shirt makers and more than your typical flannel-wearers. Creating tees, making goods and building community for people both near & far.

It’s been a while since I have done an otter drop & I’m excited to say the chosen color this time will be green! CW.

They will be up for pre-order starting tomorrow at 9am as I am ramping up for the holiday season. Pre-ordering allows me to have a “plan of attack” instead of power making everything all at once. Being a solo maker, often times I forget I am one human who can only do so much. With that being said, if you miss out on pre-ordering until Oct. 15th (while supplies last/limited quantities) select stores will be getting their batches the beginning of November. Thank you so much for the support!

About

My name is Chelsey Wingness, born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota. Growing up, I spent countless hours in the woods, exploring & unknowingly rooting myself with nature. My intentions are to bring nature into everyday lives. As we progress into our modern world I find it even more important to connect with the earth. What better way than through an object of everyday use?

Pottery & I collided while I was working on my AFA at Lake Superior College. I’ve always been a creative person, but the medium of clay took over any other art form I happened to be working with. I am happiest while forming the clay, structurally, my pieces are more sculpture like with intentional glazing. I want my pieces to strike joy in those who use them.

I am beyond grateful for the support I was given as a child from my parents. My creativity was encouraged to be itself from the beginning & I plan to follow though with it until the end. CW.

About

Aalebrijes artisans Saul Aragon-Ramirez and Alma Arreola are from the village of Arrazola, Oaxaca, Mexico. This talented husband and wife team work together to carve and hand paint the beautiful fantasy animals from copal wood.
Alma and Saul
Alma and Saul.

Alebrijes are an internationally respected Mexican tradition that first originated with Pedro Linares in the 1930s. Linares fell ill and while unconscious he dreamt of a strange forest. There, he saw animals turning into fantasies. Donkeys with butterfly wings, a rooster with bull horns and many more creatures, with all of them shouting one word, “Alebrijes.” Upon recovering, he began recreating these figures in cardboard and papier-maché.

Saul first learned the art of carving and painting at the age of 11, thanks to the help of his older brother Ramiro. Alma began painting alebrijes shortly after meeting Saul. Together, inspired by the nature and shapes of the wood around them, they created a family business now in its third decade and second generation of artists! More recently, 18 artisan families from Arrazola founded a conservation association known as Ecoalebrijes A.C., dedicated to reforestation and conservation of the coal tree. This conservation work is supported in part through a service and cultural exchange program with San Jose State University Health Science Department.

Alebrijes.: Creatures of Mexican Folklore 

Large and small alebrijes will be available for purchase throughout the weekend. They are sold following the principles of the Fair Trade Federation, which among other things provides the opportunity for each artisan to earn several times the Mexican minimum wage, while preserving their local culture and helping to protect their environment. Proceeds from the sale support the artisans in Arrazola and allow them to maintain a workshop there to pass the tradition on to the next generation.
