Sami, “bällingshoes” in new book!
Lena Persson is one of Sápmi’s most talented craftsmen and has recently come out with a book on the South Sami “bälling”shoes.
With interviews from all over the South Sami area, Lena has been able to provide descriptions of six different shoe models on how to butcher, drying, packing, pattern, etc.. That there were so many variations surprised many and now, thanks to Lena Persson, knowledge preserved for the future.
Of cause the book is on sale in our store.
