|Merete has done a fantastic job on
this beautiful coat. I remember seeing her in her coat the very first
day that I was in Longyearbyen. It was so nice that it has stuck
in my mind ever since. I met Merete several days later and we became
friends. She showed me some of the other clothing that she
had made and it was all very impressive. Even after seeing
how she makes the patterns, I can't believe that she can sew all of these
components together and get such detail. Take a close look at the
bears on the front of the coat. This coat is made mainly from seal
skin and the bears on the front came from the belly of the seal while
the outer, darker shell of the coat came from the back of the seal.
Back to the bears, look at the detail of the arms on the bears. It's
really hard to sew these fine components together and get the detail to
come out properly. But, it really comes down to Know How. She
knows how and I don't. But, still, the entire coat is very
well designed, it's very warm and it's very beautiful too. Click

of your clothing made by Merete.
From the Webmaster: These are some beautiful clothes made in native style by Merete. She has studied the native clothing for many years before she started the business in Longyearbyen on the Svalbard Island group located far north of the most northern tip of Norway's mainland. The clothes are made of various animal furs from seal to arctic fox giving them both the function of maximum warmth and beautiful styling.
