Indian Arts & Crafts Act
O’ Field Apparel honors and admires the works of our country’s Native American artists and aims to maintain a mutual bond of utmost respect and admiration. O’ Field is supportive of the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990, and honors the protection it affords to all kinds of Native American art and design.
Many O’ Field products are made with wool from Pendleton Woolen Mills, as O’ Field Apparel is one of Pendleton’s only approved fashion designers. It is an honor to be able to use such beautiful fabrics in our design work and to be able to legally sell products made from Pendleton wool that depicts Native-inspired and culturally significant designs. O’ Field always conducts research into the meaning and significance of each fabric design used from Pendleton and aims to spread honor and admiration of our land’s many Native tribes.
The Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 (P.L. 101-644), as amended, is a truth-in-marketing law that prohibits the offer or display for sale, or sale, of any art or craft product in a manner that falsely suggests it is Indian produced, an Indian product, or the product of a particular Indian Tribe. Covering all traditional and contemporary American Indian and Indian-style art and craftwork produced after 1935, the Act carries both criminal and civil penalties.
