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.
