The Setsuné Indigenous Fashion Incubator is a female-run not-for-profit social enterprise that aims to combine the culture of its designers with the fashion pieces and unique textiles that it generates.
Recently, it partnered with IKEA Etobicoke to gain more exposure and give consumers the chance to integrate its offerings into their homes in the form of bedsheets, tea towels, decorative baskets, bags, and even aprons.
Sage Paul, the co-founder of the Setsuné Indigenous Fashion Incubator, explained the combination of products by saying, "In our culture, if you go hunting, we would use all parts of the animals, and we just kind of took those ideas into the kitchen. So we made all items that you can use for kitchen, food preparation, feasting."
