The art of Khokhl.oma (hoh-lo-MA) originated in the 17th century in the Volga-river region. It is of the most famous Russian folk arts.

Khokhloma painting amazes you with its delicate floral pattern and festive coloring, which is based on combination of scarlet cinnabar and glittering gold against the black lacquer background.

In the 20s and 30s of the 19th century Khokhloma craftsmen made some innovations. They started to gild not only parts but the whole surface and covered their bowls and cups with intricate grass painting. These improvements brought big success of this folk craft.
