Mahota Textiles is the first textile company envisioned and owned by a North American tribe. They create meaningful textiles that elevate the beauty and treasured culture, inspired by their Southeast heritage. Mahota’s textiles tell their stories in expressive imagery and soft, warm woven materials.
“This abstract design symbolizes our rising. In the Chickasaw creation story, the Crawfish dove into the water to build the first land mass at the bottom of the ocean, and life ascended from there. The golden-brown stripes represent the earth’s mass, and the blue represents the ever-important water that we need to sustain life. The red symbolizes the blood of our people as we were created, as well as the blood we have shed throughout our history. The deep shades of red, blue, and golden brown combined with various textures create a work of art you see, feel, and enjoy.
