We've been busy this winter making a full collection of new designs, and we're so excited to share them with you! From enamel mugs to brailer tote bags to new dreamy chambray work shirts, we've covered some new territory but have stayed true to the basics. We wanted to make things especially for some of the people we haven't celebrated yet–our Bristol Bay fishermen, our cannery workers, and all of our Alaskan mountain men and women. We're truly inspired by our customers and our community, many of whom helped us create these new products. You will love a hoodie designed by our first guest artist, salmon mother, and long time Bristol Bay fisherman Catie Bursch. Our new tote bags were made in Homer, Alaska by family-run business Nomar. Also from Homer, the River City Saddlry helped us work some leather magic on our new products. All of our apparel is printed locally in Anchorage, and we're so grateful for all the small businesses that support us daily to make Salmon Sisters a success. We hope you love what you find here in our shop because we made it just for you.

Every week we share the stories of Alaskan makers and young fishermen on our social media channels. This project has given us a deeper appreciation for the community who work on Alaska waters and those who work to create Alaska goods. Everyday we learn from new people who inspires us to be better fishermen and create more beautiful things. Enjoy the following stories from a few of the Alaskan fishermen and makers we've learned from. Stay tuned for more wonderful stories this summer!
Thank you Vogue and the amazing Evgenia Arbugaeva for capturing this community of hard-working women that we hold in such high esteem. What a day for this diverse group of strong and independent women to have a moment of recognition. We feel incredibly to lucky to be able to use our Salmon Sisters audience to highlight our larger community and Alaska’s commercial fisheries.
This year, we traveled to Astoria, Oregon to attend the annual FisherPoets Gathering, a celebration of the commercial fishing industry in poetry, prose and song. FisherPoets has attracted storytellers and their many fans since 1998. We dare say it was one of the highlights of our winter.
