About

Native Ways of Life

Remembering the smell of tanned seal when my grandmother would stitch a smoked moose hide moccasin. That great memory is where the basis of my business started.
My first pattern that I made was an evening purse. I made a few purses to go along with selling seal skins to the native elders. Much to my surprise, people liked the quality and uniqueness of my work. Which spurred me on to make a few more unique patterns. 10 different items later a lady stepped up to my table while at a craft fair and asked, "do you make mittens?" I said, "no". "Can you make me a pair?" "I can try". 2 weeks later, she was wearing a specialized, difficult to make, pair of unique mittens while watching the Iditarod mushers cross the finish line in Nome, Alaska. It's these people, my customers, that make the difference in my life.
This is one of the most rare opportunities left in the U.S. I get the privilege to work with our ancestral animals and I'm able to share such a rare gift with you....my future buyers.

CARE FOR YOUR SEAL OR SEA OTTER: If either animal gets soiled, clean up is easy, as long as it's not chewing gum...opps. A slightly wet wash cloth with a tiny bit of dawn soap works well. Rub the soapy wash cloth over the spot then rinse the wash cloth and wipe the spot again till clean. Then hang to dry naturally. Keep fur away from heat at all times. If otter gets wet, wait till it dries and a cat brush fluffs it back into shape. For the best insulation properties, keep clean and fluffy. As long as there is not fabric involved with the garment, you can have a professional furrier legally clean it.
