Seal Skin and Sea Otter Fur Products
My real sea otter fur handmade items are never too fancy to shovel your driveway. Customers push the limits of my fashions and are always amazed how beautifully durable they are.
My work takes me back to my ancestral roots. The fur has a familiar sensation that meant life or death to my people and its value has not changed for thousands of years. Using skills taught to us from the past will insure we will never go hungry and we can always clothe ourselves. But we didn’t just hunt; we strove for individual expression in the creation of beautiful clan art. It’s with this sentimental pallet that I create modern looks with glimpses from the past. My creations are inspired from skills passed down to me by my grandfather: a very talented man from Klukwan who carved totem poles and toured the world as a Chilkat dancer. I strive to be as proud of my work as I am of my heritage.
I am Christy Ruby, an Alaskan Native Tlingit Eagle from the Keet Gooshi Hit House, Killer Whale Dorsal Fin.
