Made in Alaska and Silver Hand LogosWherever you go the Great Land, you'll find unique, authentic Alaskan products and crafts. Handcrafted items found in galleries and shops of Native artwork make very special gifts and are a wonderful way to remember your trip to Alaska. 

Some special Alaskan handcrafts include:

  • Gold nugget jewelry and items carved from ivory and jade
  • Handmade clothing and toys
  • Collectors items made from animal skins, fur or bone
  • Woven baskets of beach grass, bark or baleen
  • Alaskan delicacies - canned and smoked salmon, wild berry products and reindeer sausage
  • Native seal oil candles, beaded mittens, fur mukluks and miniature hand-carved totem poles
  • Be sure to look for the "Made in Alaska" logo, which indicates an item genuinely manufactured in Alaska. If you find a silver hand logo, it identifies the item as a Native Alaskan handicraft.
  • Handcrafted items made of walrus ivory and other by-products of subsistence hunting provide an income source for Native Alaskan artisans and a valuable investment for the buyer. Be careful though - some wildlife products cannot be transported through customs without special permits. Visitors are advised to mail these souvenirs home to avoid confusion at the border.
