For a long time, many Nenets wear broadcloth shirts of different colours over a malitsa to protect it from humidity, dirt and the sun. In a reindeer herder wardrobe, there are usually 3-4 malitsas for all occasions.
The Nenets call a malitsa an individual chum because it reliably protects a person from the cold like a chum and they even compounded the following riddle about this garment: “You enter through one hole - leave through three”.
