All seal skins processed by Great Greenland is caught by Greenlandic Inuit hunters alongside the Greenlandic coast. All skins are tanned at Great Greenland's tanning facilities in South Greenland. All sealskins comply with EU legislation on sealskins. Only Inuit hunted sealskins are approved for sale, production and import in the EU. See more on the EU official website: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/biodiversity/animal_welfare/seals/eu_seal_regime.htmColors:
At Great Greenland, we primarily sell natural sealskins, but we also color many skins in popular and fashionable colors. A dye will only be considered if the natural skin is dis-colored. A dye saves the skin from being discarded so we ensure sustainable production. A beautiful natural skin will never be colored unless it is needed.Ring Seal:
The Ring Seal is the type of seal skin which most people relate to Greenland. The Ring Seal’s clear and notable marking along the ridge has been seen in the Inuit’s clothing for hundreds of years and today the Ring Seal is still used for clothing and interior.
The Ring Seal’s natural color is light grey with very notable markings along the ridge which can vary from light grey to almost black. The look of the skin is very different from skin to skin but they are always very decorative. The Ring seals come in long haired (LH) and short haired (SH) versions. The long haired skin looks more furry while the short haired is more “flat”. The short haired Ring Seal is always slightly bigger than the long haired Ring Seal.
NOTE: All our skin pictures are taken of C skins and all skins has a different look, size and color.
