It is very short trousers, just covering the pelvis, cut out of one piece of elk skin suede and decorated with bead embroidery and fringes. The pelvis covering was fixed on the waste, with gaiters covering the whole leg tied to it. Such pelvis coverings having replaced the loincloth with fringe are the most archaic type of waist-worn clothes surviving in the costume of Tungus peoples of Siberia by the early 20th century.
