Repairing clothes

Valya sews her husband Yasha a new pair of boots made completely from reindeer. She uses the deer sinew as thread to pull in the layers of fur tightly. Almost all clothes the Nenet use and make are from reindeer skin. "During the winter there is more time for clothes and craft making. In the summer I mostly just repair things quickly" says Valya Yaptik.
