The packing polar bear was designed by Peeteekootee Ugyuk of Taloyoak. Each charming doll is individually hand crafted of 100% duffel at Taluq Designs and is signed in Inuit script by the artisan. The packing doll wears a hand embroidered parka (amauti), and comes with a bear cub tucked in the pouch. The hood is for covering the cub. There are nine other doll designs available to collect.

We just received our packing doll bear today and were so very pleased with the quality of the product. It is beautifully handcrafted. The ordering process was straight forward and efficient. We received our bear approx. 3 weeks after ordering. A very satisfied customer :)

My wife had been looking for something like this for a long time. So I just got it for this XMAS.
I was actually very surprised with the size of the doll, approximately 15" tall and the quality of the craftsmanship is remarkable. Bright colours, very creative design.
Definitely a nice way to encourage local artisans while enjoying a nice addition to our collection of Nunavut art.
Congratulations to Ivalu for the marketing effort !!!
I would definitely recommend to a friend.

The polar bear is a beautiful and solid piece of work. I like the wool and the stitching. Everything is nicely finished and very detailed. The bear is made with great accuracy. It is a really wonderful collectible piece.
