Makwa Studio was started by Maggie Thompson (Fond Du Lac Ojibwe) in 2014. Makwa pronounced like “Mukwa” means bear in the Ojibwe language.

Makwa Studio is a creative space with a focus on textiles, art and fashion. Much of the work is influenced by Thompson’s Native heritage where she brings subtle cultural references to her patterns and design work. Makwa strives to use luxury yarns specializing in the use of wool that is sourced from a US mill. Each item is designed and hand loomed in Northeast Minneapolis at the Northrup King Building. Makwa is passionate about creating high quality made goods and how our practice contributes to the discussion of contemporary Native art and fashion.
