The sacred seam (Krestetskaya stroch'ka) Folk handicraft

23 march 2000—25 april 2000
The Sacred seam is one of the brightest phenomena in contemporary folk art. Its name is due to the village of Krestzy that is located near Novgorod. Nowadays this handicraft is developed in the Valday and Krestzy districts where have been worked generations of noted masters. The exposition included more than 100 works from the collections of the Russian Museum, the Novgorod Reserve Museum and the Sacred seam handicraft that illustrate many-years history of assimilating complicated technical methods of hemstitch and ornamental tradition formation. The exhibition was organized in cooperation with open joint-stock company Sacred seam where this traditional art is organized on industrial base.
