There are many enthusiasts across Russia these days who are passionate about the traditions of their ancestors. More and more craftsmen are carefully studying and reconstructing the traditions of making Slavic clothes, accessories and authentic jewelry using ancient tools like weaver looms, reeds, and shivers. A lot of their work can be purchased online. The most popular online fair of handmade crafts in Russia and the CIS countries is www.livemaster.ru featuring works of hundreds (if not thousands) of craftsmen who post precious handmade pieces for sale. Yekaterina Nekrasova, for instance, creates precious tunics, sarafans, dresses and shirts inspired by authentic Slavic patterns, ornaments and embroidery using natural fabrics. Check out her work at www.livemaster.ru/katerrr000 as well as works of many other masters.
