We left Jokkmokk in the afternoon Told was “only 3000″ reindeer to organize that day so it should take about four or five hour to get the job done. shown the traditional way to keep warm during the sometimes extreme cold above the arctic circle. Reindeer fur in both pants and boots seemed like a very very good idea and my goodness how handsome they looked!

From the north of Sweden, a Sami folk costume. The young mother is wearing a kirtle from Arjeplog made of elk chamois leather. The kirtle is a modern version with a zig zag design round the neckline and the wrists. She is also wearing the traditional cap and a woven belt, and carrying a leather cradle, a “gietgam” (in South Lule Sami language).

How cute! Notice the shoes with curled toes.
