Else Lennert

Else Najattaa Lennert grew up in Sisimiut. Her mother sewed clothes of the skins that her father flayed from the seals he hunted.

Her mother sewed everything by hand - and this fascinated Else so much that today she makes her living as a designer.

She's proud of combining her country's sealskin with other types of material. As she says, sealskin was once essential for life - today it's a mark of quality of life.
