Case in point -- my new moccasins (generally just called "slippers" by the Inuit). After a year of looking for the perfect pair, I was thrilled to see these beauties below in our craft shop for the bargain price of $250 including tax. The reason they are not in the $300+ range is because the bottoms are cowhide rather than moosehide. But as I will only use them indoors at the office most of the time, I didn't mind that they weren't made of moosehide.
The slippers are made of sealskin, trimmed with Arctic hare, with embroidered uppers. They were made by Martha Kudlak of Sachs Harbour, a community of about 100 people in an area even more remote than Inuvik!
