Team Canada's Cowichan sweaters WILL be a hit.
But as I mentioned in my look at the collection, I cautiously used the term "Cowichan-styled" to describe the garment. I wrote:
"However, I couldn't confirm if the suppliers are Cowichan knitters. So, it's more accurate to describe it as a Cowichan-styled sweater."
And it's a good thing. Cowichan Knitters are not happy with the cultural appropriation of the form. Read about it in a local Cowichan paper here.
Thanks to blog reader, Con, for the link.
