Lii Bufloo zippered pouch features a print of original artwork of Metis artist Lisa Shepherd.
Is it a make-up bag? Is it a clutch purse? Is it a school tote? The answer is yes! Bison stands with respect and strength against the grace of the Métis flower beadwork that's colour-lock printed on durable poly canvas. This functional zippered pouch is denim lined. It has an inside double pocket that's big enough to hold a cell phone, make up, school tools or two pieces of bannock. The vegan leather strap, allows you to wrap it as a wristlet so that it can also be used as a clutch purse.
A note on Appreciation vs. Appropriation.
Is it appropriate to wear Métis artwork if you are not Métis? Yes! Provided the work has been created by a Métis person (rather than appropriated for the sake of consumerism), it is absolutely okay. It shows an appreciation for the work, as well as support for the Artist. Supporting Indigenous Artists is one of many ways to be a good ally.
