Rumpl is highlighting a new collection designed by Native American artists in partnership with the First Peoples Fund, an organization whose mission is to support and empower Native communities and artists. The collection is comprised of two original prints by Northern Cheyenne artist Jordan Craig and one original print by artist Darby Raymond-Overstreet (pictured), a member of the Navajo Nation. The prints are available across multiple Rumpl products, and a portion of each sale will benefit First Peoples Fund.
“Regrettably and naively, we have appropriated Indigenous design concepts in the past. Thankfully, our community let us know, helped us learn about the issues and create a program to do this the right way,” said Wylie Robinson, CEO and founder of Rumpl. “In partnering with Jordan Craig, Darby Raymond-Overstreet and the First Peoples Fund, Rumpl is taking the first step in our commitment to represent Indigenous art correctly and respectfully.”
Jordan Ann Craig is a Northern Cheyenne artist based in California and New Mexico. She received her B.A. from Dartmouth College and her work includes painting, prints, textile prints, and artist books. Craig’s Rumpl prints Woven Daydream and Keep Me Warm feature neutral, natural colors and bold geometric shapes, available across the Original Puffy Blanket (MSRP $129 USD), the NanoLoft Puffy Blanket (MSRP $199 USD), the Down Puffy Blanket (MSRP $259 USD), and the Shammy Towel (MSRP $54 USD).
Darby Raymond-Overstreet is an award-winning digital artist, printmaker and member of the Navajo Nation. She also received her B.A. from Dartmouth College and, through her work and studies, creates Navajo/Diné pattern designs that materialize through portraits, landscapes, and abstract forms. Darby Raymond-Overstreet’s print Sundown features warm red tones and a banded, geometric design that is inspired and derived from traditional Navajo/Diné textiles, available across the NanoLoft Puffy Blanket (MSRP $199 USD), the Stash Mat (MSRP $84 USD), and the Shammy Clean-Up Kit (MSRP $54 USD).
Both Craig and Raymond-Overstreet join the robust Rumpl Artist Division, a collaborative program that showcases the work of accomplished and upcoming artists who use diverse mediums to inspire creativity in impassioned communities around the world.
The Rumpl Artist Division collection with Native artists will launch with Jordan Craig’s prints on August 18, and Darby Raymond-Overstreet’s print will launch soon after on August 20. The collection will be available for purchase on www.Rumpl.com.
