For the second year in a row, Canada Goose “Project Atigi” will offer exclusive parkas handcrafted by 18 talented Inuit designers.
Project Atigi 2020
Canada Goose has just announced the second version of its “Atigi Project”. The purpose of this initiative is to produce a collaborative collection that enlists the help of Inuit designers.
For this year’s collection, Canada Goose will present 100 parkas created in the Canadian regions of Inuvialuit, Nunatsiavut, Nunavut, and Nunavik.
Profits from the parka sales will go back to Inuit communities through the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami Organization (The national representational organization protecting the rights and interests of Inuit in Canada).
In 2019, inaugural proceeds were used for education, employment, and cultural preservation initiatives, according to Canada Goose. Last year, the first Project Atigi collected nearly $80,000 for ITK.
The Inuit population lives in four Canadian regions: Inuvialuit, Nunavut, Nunavik, and Nunatsiavut. Last year, each received $20,000. This year, Project Atigi expects to double the donations!
