From the Gallery of the Midnight Sun, in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada, come these cute tea cozies in th shape of little Inuit people.

I like the comforting solidity of these little felt figures, and the way the fur-trimmed hood of the traditional Northern parka makes the handle at the top of the tea cosy.

Each is handsewn and embroidered, made by women of Holman, a remote Arctic community with a remarkable reputation for creativity and the graphic arts.
