Nanaimo Supply Co. is a line of branded apparel created by Common Foundry that seeks to inspire people to take pride in their city.
The Nanaimo logo expresses defiance towards Nanaimo’s troubled reputation, and represents opposition to a negative way of thinking about the city.
It celebrates the things that make Nanaimo great, but also recognizes the potential we have to lead the charge and make positive changes in our community.
In the Fall of 2019 we partnered with Petroglyph Development Group to release a limited edition SNUNEYMUXW line.
This collaboration seeks to recontextualize space in Snuneymuxw territory and bring our community together.
Nanaimo is Snuneymuxw, and this logo expresses defiance towards our city’s colonial past while providing what we hope can be a rallying point to celebrate what is beautiful about our shared history.
All proceeds from this collaboration will go towards the installation of a traditional Coast Salish welcome figure carved by artist Joel Good which will be placed on Saysutshun (Newcastle Island).
