CRAFTMANSHIP

The clothing composed of fur and skin is a long-standing factor in the sustainability of the Inuit people. Their craftsmanship was their livelihood. Their hands helped create the things that would nourish and sustain them. They used the most wholesome technology that did not take away from their physical environment.

SUSTAINABILITY IS

"The rich, complex and sophisticated culture of the Inuit has endured in Arctic Canada for over four thousand years. It has survived in one of the world's harshest climates while remaining in ecological and spiritual harmony with the environment. By making and wearing skin clothing, the Inuit celebrate their accomplishments, show pride in being a part of a unique, vibrant culture and affirm their lasting connection to the natural and spiritual worlds of their ancestors."
