The art of Russian patchwork, whose traditions were established in the 19th century has seen its second birth. Clubs and artist associations have emerged in a number of Russian regions. The author, art director of the club "Patchwork mosaic" (city of Ivanovo), tells about the birth and development of that art, the existing techniques and approaches in the manufacture of patchwork artwares. About 100 illustrations make the album a bright and picturesque sight.
The book is designed not only for those who are engaged in handicrafts, but also those who are fond of Russian textile and the Russian female folk costume.
