Alookie Korgak is the mother of Alook Design, a fun label of accessories and fashion jewelry. Leather and seal fur, fox fur, caribou hair, leather: the raw materials used by the artist echo her nomadic and Innu origins. Alookie Korgak’s creations are both delicate and modern, and they add panache to the simplest of outfits. The young woman is full of enthusiasm and has a weak spot for colour, beads and stones. She even sprinkles them all over her creations, making them unique and enticing.
What is a Qajaq? These earrings were inspired by the Qajaq (Kayak). Qajaq means “hunter’s boat” and it was perfect for hunting on the water because it was silently floating on the water, making it easy to sneak up behind prey. Qajaq represented the hunting gear and is one of the symbols of Inuit culture. Inuit used driftwood or whalebone to make a light framework, and covered it with stretched skins like seal and made it watertight with whale fat.
Alookie’s primary medium is sealskin statement pieces that blend Inuit culture with contemporary fashion, such as these stylized earrings. These unique earrings feature a mix variety of traditionally processed sealskin, beads and caribou antler, inspired from Inuit culture and art. These earrings pair well with any outfit!
