The Pirimze building was built in 1971 in Soviet Georgia. The six-storey building provided working space for all kinds of handicrafts. Basically everything could be repaired there: shoes, watches, glasses, jewellery, bags, suitcases, belts, hair dryers, kitchen machines, etc.. Knives and scissors were sharpened, hair was cut and shoes were polished. Tailors and sewers of fur and leather created individual garments for customers. Pirimze was well-known and its services were used by everyone in the city and the surrounding villages.
