As a Mama of two little ones, a woman of Metis + Filipino roots and with a mission driven outlook on life, Christine Marie is the proud founder of Awasis Boutique. Awasis means "child" in Cree. While taking time off from teaching to be a stay at home Mama, Christine put her teaching areas Home Economics + Native Studies to use on a different capacity. What started off as sewing a few bibs + aprons for another Mama due to exposure on social media, Christine quickly received continual orders and interest that led her to do some research on what was on the market for an Indigenous inspired baby/kids fashion line. To her surprise, there was no such thing within Saskatchewan, Canada.
4 months later, Awasis Boutique was born in Feb 2018. Featuring custom aprons, bibs, blankets, headbands, onesies, toddler tees + more. Whether you need a new item for your own little one or a gift to give, she has "a little something for every little one" in mind when creating her products. Explore her website, connect through our Instagram/Facebook social media pages + share your ideas or feedback, as Christine would love to hear from you!
Join her as we celebrate the Indigenous culture, add style + practicality to little ones wardrobes and give proceeds back to the community one apron, bib, blanket, headband, toddler tee + onesie at a time.
