The deeply rooted Northern Russian folk craft traditions communicate a feeling of proximity to nature. Boundless fields and forests, rivers and seas find reflection in colour and material – in amazingly beautiful works made of wood, birch-bark, fur, leather, tissue and bone that all contain a part of northern nature.
The Arkhangelsk Region is amazingly rich in its culture and centuries-old traditions. Skillful craftsmen in Arkhangelsk produce a variety of souvenirs and are truly inventive handling simple natural materials. They specialize in wood-carving and wood-painting, decorative embroidery, hand weaving, knitting and Kargopol clay toy making. You will find old and new patterns and unique designs that are being developed by Arkhangelsk craftsmen with their golden hands. Each item they produce renders warmth and kindness to our lives and home spaces, enlivening the interior of modern apartments, village houses and summer cottages.
