GNP Craft Producers Launches Website – Shoal Cove East, NL
NEW WEBSITE: www.gnpcrafts.ca
Visit them for a unique offering as they specialize in sealskin products.
Products are locally made. The pleated sealskin boots are made by a local resident in her early 80’s. She has been producing the boots for 7 decades. Seal skin boots protected us from the harsh winter conditions and damp weather.
You may want to pick up the “Out of Necessity – The Story of Sealskin Boots in the Strait of Belle Isle“.
I proudly wear my sealskin boots during winter. I turned a few heads at Memorial University on days walking across campus wearing sealskin prepared by my father.
Take some time to learn about our culture – the seal hunt, the impact on our economy and the art of sealskin boot making. You may be amazed with what your find out.
