Company Profile


The Arctic Trading Company Ltd. was established in 1978 by Keith
and Penny Rawlings with two main objectives: to encourage
preservation of traditional arts and crafts; and to establish a
facility to house artifacts which would appeal to the growing
tourist market. The company has a small manufacturing plant on
site, staffed by native sewers. They produce fur trimmed mittens,
mukluks, and slippers. Accessories are trimmed with native
beadwork or caribou hair tufting. The beadwork is individual and
bought from the community and other native groups across Canada.
The Arctic Trading Company also supports the local fur trade by
using pelts collected in the area. Native beadwork, caribou
tufting and birchbark bitings are framed, and each piece is
authenticated with the artist's name and home community. The
company originated an art form called caribou hair sculpture
which had its beginnings in western Arctic moose hair tufting.

The Arctic Trading Company collects native treasures from the far
reaches of the north, including rare narwhal tusks, musk ox
horns, polar bear hides, native jewellery and tools, authentic
native clothing, pipes, head-dresses, Eskimo soapstone sculptures
and other carved objects. The company markets its unique products
through its award winning limited edition catalogue and
brochures. The Arctic Trading Company welcomes correspondence
from all parts of the world.
