ANIAN Melton Wool
Traditionally used to make pea coats for mariners, the dense weave of melton makes it superbly resistant to both water and wind. A meticulously constructed shirt for the inclement weather of the Pacific Northwest, our versatile Modern Melton Wool is a contemporary take on a timeless design—made from warm post-consumer recycled wool, it’s soft, sturdy and naturally insulating, with cozy comfort and breathability for all-day wear. As our wool has already lived a previous life—the source garments are carefully salvaged before being sorted, processed and re-woven—it features a felt-like touch that’s smoother than other wools, and it’s manufactured in a unique, dye-free process that saves water and eliminates the need for harmful chemical dyes. Our most durable and heaviest-weight women’s shirt, the Modern Melton is cut to fit the female form and finished with a drop-in chest pocket, single-button cuffs and a longer scooped hem that falls below the seat. A double yoke rests comfortably across the shoulders and adds additional weather protection, and an inset center-back pleat allows more freedom of motion for days on the go.

ANIAN - The Georgia Coat
We believe in working with nature, not against it. Embracing the natural warmth and weather resistance of post-consumer recycled wool, this new, casually elegant coat lets you move through the seasons with ease. With the same lofted, bouclé-like Agnello blend we use in our best-selling Loft Coat, it offers cozy, soft-wearing comfort from the city’s seawalls to the windy shores of the Georgia Strait. Featuring raglan sleeves and an oversized aesthetic for easy layering, the design has a simple collar, turned caramel buttons, single-button sleeves, and a shorter straight hem; two roomy patch pockets keep essentials safe, with hidden side-entry pockets to keep your hands warm beneath. And to be as gentle as we can to the world we love, the Georgia is manufactured in our unique, dye-free process that saves water and eliminates the need for harmful chemical dyes.

Sinixt in the Slocan: The Last 3,000 Years
Written by Nathan Goodale, Alissa Nauman, Cole Harris & Lori Barkley
Although unknown until recently by the settler society that displaced them in the 19th century, the Sinixt have lived in the Slocan Valley for the last 3,000 years, perhaps much longer. Drawing on recent archaeological investigations, Part 1 of this booklet describes the occupational history of one of their villages, at Slocan Narrows some 10 km south of Slocan Lake. Then, relying on the ethnographic record, Part 2 describes Sinixt life in the valley in the mid-18th century, before the devastating smallpox epidemic of the early 1780s, then follows a changing Sinixt demography until about 1900, when Sinixt seem to have been gone from the Slocan. A third part, dealing with the years from 1900 to the present, treats the return of Sinixt to the valley and the difficulties and opportunities this has created.
