Amauti
Anonyme - Anonymous
Central Arctic
Inuit: Iglulingmiut (Aivilingmiut)
1925-1935, 20th century
Caribou fur, glass beads, ivory, bone, teeth, wool braid, cotton tape and thread, stroud, sinew
48 x 128 cm
Additional notes from Wikipedia: “It is the parka worn by Inuit women of the eastern Canadian arctic. Up until about two years of age, the child nestles against the mother’s back in the amaut, the built-in baby pouch just below the hood. The pouch is large and comfortable for the baby. The mother can bring the child from back to front for breast-feeding or for eliminatory functions without exposure to the elements. This traditional eastern Arctic Inuit parka designed to keep the child warm and safe from frostbite, wind and cold, also helps to develop bonding between mother and child.” 
“Traditionally the mother or female care-giver wears an amauti, but the garment may also be worn by fathers or male care-givers. A male who wears an amauti is said, in the south Baffin tradition, to be probably more successful when next hunting for certain species of animals.”

Just so beautiful. I could cry looking at these. Reason enough why the 1920s is my favourite decade, fashion wise.

Boué Soeurs!
