In the old days, clothes and such household objects as table-cloths, carpets and runners, napkins, and belts were always homespun.

Our craftswomen practice all known ways of hand weaving and of braiding belts.

The collection of hand-made belts includes over 60 types, and it is constantly growing. Now it includes belts typical for Tula and Southern Russia, and also belts that were used all over Russia. In the old days, the process of making belts acquired special symbolic meaning. A belt was considered to be a very strong amulet. It was put on a baby a week after it was born, and belts were worn all life long. To take a belt off of a person meant to dishonour him or her.

All our woven items are hand-made. Each of them not only shows the skill of the craftswomen, but also is made with warm wishes of happiness, luck and good health.
