Vai, women’s mittens.
Kola Peninsula, province, churchyard

The mittens were hand-knitted from white and colored woolen threads. The ornament is geometric, typical for the Saami of the Kola Peninsula. Sawn to the mittens’ ends are woolen cords with tassels. They were used to tie the mittens together in order not to loose the pair. Abstract by L.V. Korolkova
