A terrific showcase for Native Canadiana themes, an artist couple, Eleanor and Anthony (Tony) Paine created SKEMO Textiles Ltd in Toronto, Ontario Canada in 1967 and ran the company till it was sold in 1997, designing gorgeous bold native themed scarves which were then made in Japan. Eleanor was born in Singapore and attended the Birmingham College of Art from 1957 to 1961 and emigrated to Canada with her husband in 1963. They currently have an art studio in Victoria B.C. Canada and run Prema Graphics Ltd still designing and creating lovely native themed artwork.
An example of one of their high quality scarves, a Native Sun Face in shimmery metallic silver, black and red. c1980's.
Look for the artists' signature & artwork title on textiles with a SKEMO label.
Another example of a scarf with a Native design by the Paine's is this scarf showing some scenes of Inuit life.
Signed by both Tony and Eleanor for SKEMO and likely c1980's.
A little older, with a little bit of "kitsch" is the scarf that says "Souvenir of Canada" and shows sepia toned views of popular Canadian landmarks.
