WELCOME

MaiTribe Studio Gallery

All of my naturally dyed and eco-printed fabrics are designed and hand dyed, by myself, in my small studio, in central Ontario, Canada.

Many of these individually designed fabrics are now being incorporated into 3-dimensional fibre art.

Stay tuned for new updates!

My customers have described my naturally dyed fabrics as eye-catching and desirable.

My naturally dyed/ecoprinted items include: Tunics, Tablecloths and Table Runners. These unique items are perfect gifts for a special friend or for yourself. 

JUST ADDED

Fibreart

Join me for a journey through my experimentation with fibre art! I’ll be documenting my progress in creating 3- dimensional wall art and installation pieces. I would love to have you along for the ride.

TUNICS

Sewn in India

My cotton tunics were sewn for me in Jaipur, India, using my much loved & well travelled tunic, as a pattern. These tunics look amazing with leggings, wide kimono style pants or skirts of various lengths. They can be dressed up or down, very versatile.

TABLECLOTHS & TABLE RUNNERS

Elevated Dining

These exquisite tablecloths and table runners, while subtle in design and colour guarantee a second look! Appealing in the kitchen, dining room, hallway or bedroom they are ideal for daily use as well as for special occasions.

Each tablecloth and table runner is dyed and designed separately making them unique in colour and design.

They are ideal for any occasion, including daily meals.

Naturally dyed fabrics pair very well with each other, regardless of colour.

PAINTINGS

Airbrushed Paintings on Canvas & Paper

In my paintings, I use many layers of transparent paint on opaque, to give depth and the illusion of floating.

COLLAGES

Elegant &
Eye-Catching

During a trip to Hawai’i (2014) I began a series of collages. Since I have a need to be engaged in some form of creativity when travelling, I decided that collages would be easy to transport and work on.

In each piece, I cut out Lotuses and added pencil and coloured pencil drawing. In Hawai’i I finished 4 collages, completed  7 more during a trip to Thailand (2015) and most recently, 6 in India. Prior to my trips, I painted over 100 Lotuses.

SEWING PROJECTS

Custom Fabrics for Art Projects

These up-cycled damask linen and cotton fabrics are ideal, as a piece for a sewing project, such as part of a quilt. Or they can become a part of a clothing item, scarf, change purse, pillow cover, handbag. So many possibilities!

MEET THE ARTIST

Hi. I'm Maija.

Producer of one of a kind fabrics, I am a Visual/Textile Artist at MaiTribe Studio Gallery, in central Ontario, Canada.

My home and studio are on the shores of beautiful Georgian Bay. We live in the tiny hamlet of Big Bay. Full time residents count only about 25 families. These numbers swell significantly in the summer, when cottagers and visitors come from Ontario, Quebec and Europe to enjoy nature at it’s finest!

Over the years, I have worked in many art techniques including: printmaking, coloured pencil drawing, airbrush painting (on paper, canvas and fabric), papier mache, collages and Natural Dyeing/Eco printing on fabric. Over time, I have merged several of them together. This has made my work visually richer and made me a more disciplined artist.
