Totem Design House began as a family collaboration between brother and sister creative team Jesse & Erin Brillon. The Brillons are of Haida and Cree ancestry and have grown up in deep appreciation of their rich cultural heritage. Raised on the Northwest Coast of BC to a commercial fishing family, the two were raised on the Pacific Ocean. Being grounded in nature and in their culture, the two have been inspired and influenced by the art of their people. Jesse, having been taught by some of the great carvers and jewellers, has been carving museum quality jewelry for the last decade. Jesse provides the bold Haida motif while Erin, develops the garment design and color combinations to enhance the striking Haida totem animal designs in fresh new ways.
In 2015 Andy Everson joined the TDH team, which features the exclusive Andy Everson Collection. Erin & Andy have since built a new home and studio with showroom on Andy’s traditional K’omoks First Nation territory in Comox BC. Primarily operating as a production facility, also offering a showroom that is open by appointment. They offer art prints, jewelry, apparel and home decor textiles.
