Russian embroidery

Embroidery traditions have been preserved in Ivanovo. Ivanovo embroidery originally was geometric, but later included floral ornament, embroidered on translucent fabric with white or colored thread. Embroidery combines many types of stitches. Nowadays in Ivanovo (the city is the administrative center of the oblast of the same name), you can buy embroidered towels, bed linen, and a lot of other products.

Ivanovo is also famous for having a high number of beautiful unmarried local women, but that's another story.
