These shoes are sewn by hand from a reindeer skin removed from the feet, this material is called kamus. Up to ten kamuses are needed for a pair of pimas.
The Nenets take great care of footwear, they wear them for 5-7 years or more. Each man necessarily has 2-3 pairs, which can be inherited. There are pimas that are part of the funeral garments, a tundra resident goes to the lower world with them. There are also holiday pimas that can serve a lifetime.
