1. American Dakota

The colorfully-designed, artisanal textiles of American Dakota are something to be treasured, for each pattern comes from unrivaled authenticity that bleeds a craftsmanship you won’t find anywhere else in the nation. The defining trait of American Dakota is their dedication to creative collaboration with Native and Indigenous artists, providing a platform for names like Naiomi Glasses (Diné/Navajo), Rande Cook (Kwakwaka’wakw), and Steven Paul Judd (Kiowa-Choctaw). Their textiles are made-to-order in Calhoun, GA, a region renowned as the “Carpet Capital” of the world, and because of their homegrown operation, all materials and dyes are sourced in the US, ensuring star-studded quality that reflects the patchwork of North American Native identities. Drawing inspiration from diverse landscapes, all designs are dyed in EnduraStran fibers, whose quality yarns repel water, hold color, and lie flat. The team at American Dakota is ever-evolving their approach to earthly textiles, and they make notable strides to give back in their communities wherever possible, working closely with One Spirit and Re-Member charities to support the Indigenous art forms they celebrate. Having been granted a Phoenix Award from Friends of New Echota in 2019 and approached by Bass Pro Shops for exclusive designs, American Dakota is a notable mill you should consider when filling a space.
