Before the rise of manufactured fabrics, Indigenous peoples from coastal and riverine regions around the world tanned or dried fish skins and sewed them into clothing. The material is strong and water-resistant, and it was essential to survival. 

"Lisa Michelin is an Inuk seamstress and craftsperson from North West River, Labrador. Although she often works with sealskin and other furs, her latest focus has been the medium of caribou tufting and beading on birch bark and hides, highlighting the neutrals from the land/animals with a vibrant flare of colour".
