This Iglulik Inuit-made qulittuq (man’s parka) was produced in the early twentieth-century from thick caribou skins to withstand the cold winters of the central Arctic. The pullover garment was hand-sewn with sinew. The bottom fringe was also made of caribou skin. The back was longer than the front to provide extra warmth when hunting and trapping. The contrasting brown and white fur made the outer coat both elegant and practical.
