WINNER: Sarah Takolik
Headshot of the artist: My name is Sharon Okalik from Whale Cove. I also sew parkas, amauti and hand sew mitts.
Made this wolf parka few years ago. My husband said it’s very light and warm compared to wearing a material parka. I used about four wolf skins to make the parka.
I made this for my niece. This is now the style that we make a lot.
Also leather mitts. Good for in town and during spring/fall time when it’s not too cold.
