Kamiks of the Netsilik Inuit
In addition to seal and caribou skin, Netsilik Inuit use other materials such as dog skin, commercially tanned skin and wool stroud for footwear. They are recognizable because the soles may be pleated or flat. Flat soles are often double-layered, one of which is usually sealskin. Haired seal skin boots are often made with shaved bearded seal skin and a vamp of bleached or shaved ringed seal skin. The hair direction and any decoration flows horizontally on women's boots and vertically on men's boots. Caribou skin boots are made from the leg skins and have soles made from caribou bull skin or bearded seal skin.
