The unique rag-dolls

Self-trained artist Natalia Borisova, from Russian Far East, started making these dolls 4 years ago. She got an inspiration from the Tilda, a world known doll invented by Norwegian artist Tone Finnanger. At the same time, Russia has its own tradition of making rag-dolls; they often served as talismans. The dolls by Natalia wear colorful clothes, and each has its own funny name. They resemble good fairies. Such doll would be a perfect Christmas gift and can even start a new collection.

The unique collection of hand-painted versions of postcards dedicated to the Christmas and New Year

Commissioned in the former USSR, these state/house-published postcards were originally created by artist Valentina Kisseleva in the 1970’s and published or reprinted into thousands of copies for state-wide distribution. Nevertheless, each one of them is artwork in itself. They are magic and colorful, and with elements of fairy tales.
