Traditional Inuit Clothing

Traditional Inuit clothing consisted of a parka, pants and mittens made from caribou or sealskin (worn in one or two layers according to the season), and up to four layers of footwear. Each garment was tailored to fit the individual. The seamstress, relying on years of experience to determine the shapes and sizes of pattern pieces, used hand, string and eye to measure, or used already existing garments as models.  You can see this type of clothing worn daily in Nunavut.
