Fur (domestic reindeer); bone: horn (domestic reindeer); leather: natural leather: suede: skin suede; cloth: braid; threads: plant fiber: cotton
Made of deer skin, with set-in hood and sleeves. The hood is made of deer fur taken from the forehead, with ears and horns. This tradition of making clothes and headgear is traceable to the ancient hunters’ custom of putting a roe or deer hide with horns and ears on the head. The opening between the legs is closed with a flap, under which tundra moss was padded. Children wore such overalls between the age of one to five years, up to the 1980s. Abstract by M.V. Fedorova
