Khokhloma

Khokhloma painting is one of the oldest Russian popular crafts which appeared in 17th century. This was possibly one of the most famous kinds of popular painting. It is decorative painting on the wooden plates and dishes and furniture which is made in red and black colors with golden tint. Traditional Khokhloma ornament represents red juicy strawberries and ashberries and flowering branches. Sometimes it is images of birds, fishes and various animals.

“Khokhloma” was the name of the large market village where merchants from neighbor villages brought different products for sale. All best products, mainly crockery, were bought by other merchants, and than they sold them throughout Russia and even abroad. Thus bright crockery became to associate with the name of market village. Hence it is called “khokhloma”.

In the shop “Ukrainian Souvenirs” you can buy wonderful crockery and household goods decorated with real Khokhloma painting.

We are always glad to see you in the shop “Ukrainian Souvenirs”!
