Inuit women were highly respected by all the members of a family, because they were sewing clothes for everyone. And in Greenland you can survive only with proper and high-quality attire. Years ago people in Greenland couldn’t just go shopping and buy warm clothing. They had to make it by themselves. Men hunted and brought skins; women worked with those skins, made leather, fur, and suede, sewed clothes, and decorated it. There is even an Inuit saying: “A man is what his wife makes him”. It means that the life of a man depends on his wife’s skills in making good clothing. A skillful woman had all the chances to get married.
