The Cowichan sweater originated during the late 19th century among the Cowichan, a Coast Salish people in British Columbia. Our authentic Cowichan sweater was knit by indigenous makers in Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia. Authentic Cowichan sweaters are so distinctive and prized that in 2011, the Canadian government recognized Cowichan knitters and sweaters as nationally and historically significant.
