The bootmaker is a peasant sitting on a wooden chair at the window and making waders, i.e. leather boots for fishing/hunting. The man is wearing a shirt, trousers, and felt boots. Everyday shirts were sewn from motley homespun cloth, later from calico or sateen. Traditionally, the shirt was worn untucked and girt with a belt. Trousers were made of homespun motley fabric, canvas, wool, and cloth. Shoemaking tools and pieces of leather are on the bench in front of the man, and a metal candlestick is on a board to his left. Icons are arranged on a shelf in the corner. Abstract by O.G. Baranova
