Golden Khokhloma is an original Russian folk craft, famous for its painted wooden utensils. The craft was born in the late 17th century, taking its name from the large trading village of Khokhloma. Based on centuries of experience, masters of handicrafts have developed an unprecedented and hitherto unrivaled technique of gilding turned-work utensils without real gold. While the method has remained the same, the ornamental patterns and artistic subjects are constantly changing, making this an artistic form that is continually developing and improving. The Semenov Khokhloma Painting trademark is a guarantee of authenticity and high quality. Products with this trademark are certified and suitable for everyday use (they are made with only natural materials and dyes). In practically every Russian home, you will find a spoon, bowl, or cup with Khokhloma art. Khokhloma dishes have always been a valued gift, brightening up the interior of the home and lending a festive mood.
