Red dyed ringed seal
The Ring Seal is the type of seal skin which most people relate to Greenland. The Ring Seal’s clear and notable marking along the ridge has been seen in the Inuit’s clothing for hundreds of years and today the Ring Seal is still used for clothing and interior.
The Ring Seal’s natural color is light grey with very notable markings along the ridge which can vary from light grey to almost black. The look of the skin is very different from skin to skin but they are always very decorative. The Ring seals come in long haired (LH) and short haired (SH) versions. The long haired skin looks more furry while the short haired is more “flat”. The short haired Ring Seal is always slightly bigger than the long haired Ring Seal.
