Permafrost is made up of soil, rocks, sand, and organic matter (plant and animal remains), held together by ice. It is in these organic remains that carbon is captured [and] if it is released in vast quantities, it could become one of the main sources of pollution on the planet. The increase in global temperature due to climate crisis has been especially highlited in the Arctic, which is heating up three times faster then the rest of the globe. This situation would have several consequences, not only in Western civilization, but for many other forgotten people, especially those first affected, the indigenous communities of the Arctic, such as the Inuit.
Their religion claims that the inuit is divided into 3 axes: name, body and spirit. In this way, the “name” of this project means its reason and object, the permafrost. The “body” is determined by the matter of the proposal, the coat. And finally, the “soul” of this is its meaning: sustainability, which is the fundamental aspect on which Manteco´s philosophy and the essence of P3RMFRST are based. On the other hand, the project in question is nourished by the way of life and habits of the inuit, a culture based on making the most of the resources their environment offers. In this way, we are talking about a garment that takes into account parameters such as the use of the animal for a different purpose: tools, clothing, ornaments, hunting utensils, etc.
