The Puisi Kintsugi Collection

Pearls after pearls

I have sewn in your scars

Our feminine names

Weaving the link

The unconditional love

Multiplied

To reach you

Primal animal

Ancestor

Pearl after pearl

I have sewn in your scars

Our feminine prayers

Back in the Line

Welcoming forgiveness

Absolution

Each of the secret chants

Millenary healing

Emergency of the Present Time

Pearls after pearls

I have sewn in your scars

Our feminine gratefulness

Wearing the dress made with your skin

Beloved seal

Your fur has the colour of water

And its surface reveals

The love from the abysses

Puisi Kintsugi is a Tribute-Collection of dresses to the Inuit People, inspired by the Japanese art of « kintsugi » : healing, repairing and enhancing scars with gold. It is the innovative idea of the French artist Oïjha to use this traditionnal knowledge with Greenlandic seal - « puisi » - fur for a wearable purpose, turning the natural seal scars into precious treasures. The ethics of Puisi Kintsugi is dedicated to heal our scars and those of our ancestors, reaching our common animal. It is a celebration of Life.
