Today, artisans and designers are using it as a sustainable solution for both function and fashion.  On the Proudly Indigenous Crafts & Designs (PIC&D) online store, each pelt’s natural patterns and colours are celebrated and showcased. This includes accessories, clothing, footwear, mukluks, and home decors.

Seal Fur & Leather

Seal skin, both as fur and leather, have been used for thousands of years. Specifically to protect Canada’s northernmost residents from the harshest winter conditions.  Seal pelt has a remarkable ability to repel water. It is breathable, but blocks wind and retains heat. Seal skin leather is soft and strong, rugged and elegant and perfect for a multitude of uses.
