Care instructions: Seal fur and sea otter fur is incredibly durable. It's okay if it gets wet; just slowly dry it out. Fur should be stored in a cool, dry place with air flow -not in a plastic bag. If the fur gets too dried out by heat or lack of air it may crack. For professional cleaning take fur to a furrier. Due to international regulations, seal handicrafts cannot be exported out of the United States.
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. Sea otter fur is historically prized as one of the rarest furs in the world. In 1968, Neiman-Marcus purchased four pelts at $2,300 apiece. After a history of foreign exploitation, Alaska Native tribal groups now have exclusive rights to hunt and work with the fur. Because of traditional Native hunting practices and conservation efforts, Alaska sea otter is no longer listed as an endangered species. The luxuriously warm, soft and durable fur contains up to one million hairs per square inch, making it the densest in the World. Shaman Furs is the first label to bring sea otter fur back into American high fashion since the 1970's.
