American Dakota is a small rug manufacturer based in Georgia that specializes in designs that would look perfect in a rustic mountain cabin, lodge or maybe even your home!
American Dakota rugs are also known for their nod to Native American designs, working closely with Native artists to get the details just right. Mark Ford is not Native himself, so we asked how did he get involved with the Native community?
“Even though I am a non-native I have a unique perspective on the pow wow community since I have illustrated “how-to” articles for Whispering Wind magazine since 1992. This publication is sought after for its in-depth articles on not only historical Native American clothing but also how to build regalia that is currently trending on the pow wow circuit. In college I majored in Art and minored in Native American Studies. I also spent two Summers on the Blackfeet Reservation and worked in the Curator’s office in Yellowstone.”
So Mark naturally paired his passion for textiles and his interest in Native American art with his western and rustic lifestyle to start American Dakota rugs.
