Russian Handicrafts Souvenir Gifts with Feeling
August 20, 2010 15:13

A lot has been written about various Russian handicrafts on this website, and now you can easily buy these souvenirs on-line!

Russia has always been rich in resourceful masters able to invent the ways of bringing beauty and miracle into mundane living and ordinary household things. The realm of Russian folk handicrafts, which are actually the best gift souvenirs one can find in Russia, is multicoloured and varied; anyone can chose something to one’s liking.

These are amusing Matryoshkas and resounding balalaikas, ornate samovars and Zhostovo trays in rich flowery designs, lacquered miniature painting from Fedoskino and Palekh and decorative Easter eggs, warm and delicate shawls from Pavlovski Posad and warm-to-touch birch-bark caskets, golden wooden Khokhloma tableware, Rostov enamel jewellery, handmade dolls in national Russian costumes, and what not!

All these items, being essentially Russian, emanating the spirit of vast and generous Russian land, have long gained international acknowledgment. In the age of plastic, concrete and hi-tech they remain to be true sources of natural warmth and cordial vibration that imbues all Russian arts and crafts. Souvenirs made of natural materials with artisans’ loving hands carry us over to the days of unhurried living and fairy tales.

Moreover, some of these original works of useful arts can also perform some functions along with the decorative one. Thus, for example, wooden spoons are not just tableware, but can serve as musical instruments, not to mention balalaika, which is, of course, a musical instrument, but also an exotic interior decoration. As for popular Matryoshkas, they can be quite useful as absorbing developing toys for kids. Birch-bark boxes and vessels with their subtle charm are also very healthy due to amazing qualities of birch bark. Very functional and light are golden Khokhloma tableware as well. Samovar is not just an interior decoration, but is really great for making most delicious tea!

Naturally, you don’t have to look for obligatory practical use of souvenirs; the point is that you can make gifts with feeling to the people near and dear to you!

So if you want to make beautiful, original and useful gifts with feeling, visit our online Russian souvenir shop!
