Mitten Exhibition to Run in Saint Petersburg

The Mitten exhibition of the Guild of Textile Technologists will be opened in St. Petersburg on December 18.

      The exhibition will acquaint the visitors not only with up-to-date trends of design and decorative and applied arts, but first of all, with the authors’ creative welcoming of the winter and its magic holidays. Composition ideas and emotional self-expression of professional artists will be displayed in various art objects created in a number of techniques, such as textiles, felting, batik and others.

      The Russian word “varezhka”, i.e. “mitten” is probably derived from the phrase “Varangian mitten”. It can mean that this piece of clothing was adopted from the Varangians. These were natives of the Scandinavian countries that were called Varangians in Russia.

      The exhibition will run till January 16, 2014.
