To the team at RusClothing,
Just a quick email to let you know that my order arrived safely here in
South-East Queensland, Australia, a couple of days ago. The traditional
dress fits me perfectly, and it is so beautifully made! I will wear it at
our family celebration on Christmas Eve. I also think the apron is
exquisite, and it will make a lovely gift for my aunt, who I know will be
delighted to receive it.
Thank you so much for your unique, well-made and reasonably priced products,
and also for the care you took with my order. I certainly hope to purchase
more products from you in the future!
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a peaceful and joyous Christmas,
and a bright and happy New Year, and may your business prosper.
I am so happy I discovered your on-line shop.
Warmest regards, Jennie, Australia
Presented Russian handmade head-dresses were traditional for Russia in 18 - 19 centuries. Women's headwear, though varied in shape and style, was subject to one of the strictest regulations: no married woman could be seen in public with her hair showing. Maidens, on the other hand, were expected to have at least tops of their heads uncovered, and were free to show off their hair. The best known and probably oldest kokoshnik had a high front shaped like a crescent with rounded edges. The front of a kokoshnik is adorned with gold and pearl embroidery.
