hand painted paddles inspired by First Nations culture

Inspired by Indigenous art and nature, Onquata produces decorative and water-resistant aspen paddles, created by Wendat artisans in Wendake, an Indigenous territory in the heart of Québec City. The mother-daughter team of Lise and Lara view their work as a natural extension of ancestral utility. Beautifying utilitarian objects is a proud part of Wendat heritage, and humble paddles become modern art when graced with ONQUATA’s elegant designs. Order one today from the online boutique! onquata.com.
