Seal Fur Cuff

Seal Fur Accessories - Handcrafted by Erin Brillon (Haida/Cree)

For time immemorial, seal has been sustainably harvested by Indigenous people, for food and clothing. In fact, nearly all of the seal fur we use at Totem Design House was harvested and processed by our friend and relatives on Haida Gwaii.

If you have concerns regarding the ethics of seal furs, we refer you to the International Fund for Animal Welfare statement: "IFAW does not oppose the killing of seals for food, clothing and other products for local use by indigenous peoples. Nor do we oppose the sale and distribution of seal products from subsistence hunts within indigenous communities."
