Kosovorotka, Russian shirt, has a long history and keeps all beauty from Sliavc times. It is known for its straight-cut freely flowing lines, the considerable length of the dress and especially the long sleeves. Fine embroidered ribbons decorate the shirt on the chest and as a trim on sleeves and on the bottom of the shirt. Silky threads on the trim give a beautiful luster and balance with the base color of the shirt. A matching belt adds that final ethnic touch to the shirt. The shirt can be worn with or without a belt, with the collar buttoned or unbuttoned.
Another name of the Russian shirt, tolstovka, comes from a famous Russian writer Leo Tolstoy who was always seen in a simple kosovorotka at the end of his life.
All our Russian shirts are individually made by skillful Russian kraftsmen.
