Since the 13th century golden-thread seamstresses of the town of Torzhok have been preserving their art. In the past craftswomen embroidered footwear, clothing and costumes with gold and silver threads, and later embroidered the insignia of the Red. Still later they embroidered items of the Soviet army, including skull-caps and bags.
Today in the town of Torzhok in the Tver Oblast you can find the “Torzhok Gold Embroidery” factory, a museum and a shop at the factory. You can buy gold embroidered handkerchiefs, napkins, tablecloths, brooches and other jewelry, hair clips, handbags, scarves, shawls, and much more!
