(Inuktitut language meaning to stitch) wall hangings are colourful woollen fabric, hand-stitched with images depicting the tradition, culture and natural environment across Inuit territory.  These products demonstrate the intricate sewing skills of Inuit women.
Our collection of Kiluk wall hangings are all made in Arviat, an Inuit community of 1500 people located on the west shore of the Hudson’s Bay in Nunavut, Northern Canada.
These gift items add a touch of true Canadian Inuit creativity.
