Leningrad grannies set out to preserve indigenous wool crafts


In Russia there is a project to preserve the traditional crafts of the indigenous peoples of the Leningrad region associated with the producing clothing, toys and household items made of wool. Elderly needlewomen, many of whom are already around 90 years old, are releasing products based on traditional patterns, and will go from village to village teaching people the art of knitting. The best knitted products will be given to five rural and ethnographic museums, and also shown in a mobile exhibition.
