Birchbark items are made of pure birch or can be decorated by cutting through birch and stamping. Stamping on birch is one of the oldest handicrafts.
Birch bark has always been a traditional material for Russian masters. We can compare it with Egyptian papyruses. Due to its remarkable quality (durability, flexibility, rot resistance) birch bark has been for a long time an ideal material for utensils such as buckets, jars for dry products, and liquids.
Since the 18th-century birch bark has been used for decorative purposes. The material for production is the birch bark stored in May-June. Apart from items decorated with cutting or stamping, there are items made of interlaced birch stripes. The new line of birch bark decoration is different stones: amber, jasper, malachite, lapis lazuli.
