This doll is made of seal skin leather (Traditional Style). Her kaspek, a traditional eskimo dress, is made from a printed pattern. Store bought fabric, fake hair, & wire. Eyes and mouth are sewn in with DMC Thread. Her beautiful bootie were created out of scraps of seal skin, leather, and wolf as trim. Doll is approx. 10” H x 3” W. This beautiful bootie were created out of scraps of seal skin, leather, and wolf as trim. Sequin bead is placed on the middle of the booties. (Colored Dot You see on top) I tend to use whatever fur is left over from parkas to create miniature Eskimo every day motif. This means that the trim may vary form wolf, beaver, otter, mink, etc… delica, and sequin beads are added for a colorful unique finish on the booties.
