Sustainable Fur The designer sources fur by asking the animal for its life before hunting and skinning it with his own hands. Ancient rituals, such as smudging with Labrador Tea and giving the animal its last drink of water in prayer, honor the animal. Shaman Furs upholds Yup'ik Eskimo tradition of a spiritual and respectful relationship with seals that has been celebrated for thousands of years. This incredibly personal connection is carried throughout its journey to you. Shaman Furs' unique business ethics and standards of quality have created a story and relationship not found in typical fashion houses. Alaska Native tribal groups have exclusive rights to hunt and work with seal fur. In Southeast Alaska, where Shaman Furs harvests seals for food and fur, seals are not listed as an endangered species. Ranging in shade from white to gold with energetic patterns and a sleek texture, seal fur is an ideal material for one-of-a-kind looks. Handcrafting fur from rare and expensive materials, Shaman Furs takes high quality construction to a unique place.
