eBay Canada Partners with Canadian Indigenous Artists for Exclusive Fall Fashion Collaboration

eBay Canada has partnered with Canadian Indigenous artists Jordan Bennett and Patrick Hunter for its Fall Designer Collaboration: a collection of four limited-edition scarves. Each piece of wearable art features a print that links designs and symbols from the artist's Indigenous heritage, with a modern aesthetic and colour trends fit for Fall 2016.

“We love working with Canadian talent to showcase their work on our powerful platform, while offering our buyers something exclusive to eBay,”
— says Andrea Stairs, managing director, eBay Canada.

 "Over the years we've featured many different Canadian designers, and are thrilled to be able to present these pieces from Indigenous Canadians this fall. We're thrilled to bring wider attention to the amazing work produced by these two contemporary artists."

The scarves, which are made in Canada, will retail for $75 CAD with free shipping across Canada. All proceeds from the sale will go to each designer's not-for-profit of choice benefiting Indigenous communities: The St. John's Native Friendship Centre for Jordan's designs, and N'we Jinan for Patrick's designs.

The sale will run until October 18, 2016 at ebay.ca/Collaborations.

"This collaboration is just one example of how e-commerce can connect artists, entrepreneurs and businesses of all shapes and sizes with a broad market of national and international buyers," says Stairs. "This is particularly powerful for sellers in rural or remote areas of the country. Every day, Canadian eBay sellers defy the notion that you need to be located in an urban centre in order to have a successful commercial business."

 As part of the company's ongoing efforts to support Canadian talent, entrepreneurs and businesses, this week eBay Canada has also launched a "Buy Canadian" event, highlighting the great inventory eBay sellers bring to eBay.ca. With more than one million new Canadian items added in the past year, eBay Canada continues to expand its selection of domestic inventory while connecting buyers with great finds around the world.
