Tom Thomson (1877-1917) is considered one of the most important and influential early Canadian artists. Together with members of the Group of Seven, he created a new style of painting to portray rugged Canadian landscapes. Tom Thomson died in July of 1917, when his body was found floating in Canoe Lake.
Today, Roots is proud to announce a unique design collaboration with the Tom Thomson Art Gallery of Owen Sound, Ontario. The collection combines the classic Roots aesthetic inspired by Algonquin Park and the art of artist, outdoorsman and Canadian legend Tom Thomson.
