Lori comes from generations of cedar-weavers, wood-carvers, and blanket-makers. In collaboration with her maternal uncle, Dalbert (Alex) Weir, Lori uses his design to produce wearable and stylish clothing and accessories. The hand-cut motifs are made of ultra suede and deerskin, which is then appliquéd with invisible hand stitching on various fabrics including cashmere-wool, deer skin leather, ultra suede, lambskin leather, wool, and manmade fabrics.
