Boots with

The Fur

The presented shoes are a pair of low winter footwear. They are made of reindeer fur leather and decorated with red trimming, sewn between the sole, upper and its top edge. The trimming is a factory product (so-called haberdashery), obtained by the inhabitants of Lapland as early as the turn of the 18th and 19th century through trade with the Scandinavian and Russian merchants. The reindeer skin, on the other hand, was the basic raw material for the Sami who practised nomadic pastoralism, as well as for making clothing, furnishing the household (tent) and its covering.
