The Boss

Size: 195cm x 100cm (77in x 39in)

“In the Great Bear Rainforest, they call him “Boss”.  He is a rare Spirit Bear, a sub-species of the black bear (Kermode).  They possess a recessive gene.  The legend amongst Indigenous Peoples says that the raven made every 10 black bears white to remind the world of the ice age.  Boss shakes off the water from his fur after fishing for salmon roe on the bottom of the river.”

Each scarf is produced from a custom milled fabric made from 100% recycled plastic and diverts 3 bottles from the waste stream. They are soft and flowy and feel beautiful around your neck. Only 200 scarves have been produced in this print as part of a First Edition. All scarves are sustainably produced and are developed and manufactured employing the highest ethical production standards.

10% of the sale price of each of Michelle’s ‘The Boss’ scarves is donated to the Raincoast Conservation Foundation.

The Floe-Edge, Nunavut

Size: 195cm x 100cm (77in x 39in)

“The day I first stood on the floe-edge near Pond Inlet, Nunavut, my world changed forever.  Late in the spring, the winter ice meets the open water, attracting a plethora of wildlife from bears to birds.  It is a magical place and it is where my obsession with the Arctic began.  It became my mission and passion to bring the north to the south, to show the beauty and wonder of the Canadian polar regions.”

Each scarf is produced from a custom milled fabric made from 100% recycled plastic and diverts 3 bottles from the waste stream. They are soft and flowy and feel beautiful around your neck.
