The Russian Museum has one of the best in Russia collection of headscarves and shawls — silk, brocade, woolen, embroidered and knitted. The exhibition will present more than 600 works of various types of textile art, painting, graphics, decorative and applied art, and more than 30 costumes, including shawls, headscarves, pashminas, and stoles.

Scarves and shawls are not only interesting as a complement to the costume; they also vividly represent the types of traditional art, with original patterns and various methods of hand-made production. These items show the development of both the manufacturing textile industry and various artistic centers of folk art, such as Kolokoltsevo, Orenburg, Vologda, Nizhny Novgorod, Kargopol, and many others, from the 18th century to the beginning of the 21st century.

The exhibition is supported by PAO Severstal, PAO Power MachinesNordgold companyTUI tourist company
