This wonderful hand crafted Russian box is made from Siberian Birch Bark creating this lovely work of art. The artists take the birch bark (which feels a bit like leather) and they carve or press the design they want out of the bark. Then they stain and layer the pieces creating this lovely work of art! This box is square with a lovely floral and woven pattern on the lid and an ornate design all the way around. (SEE CLOSE UP PICTURES BELOW). These boxes are incredible to see in person and each one comes with a note translated from the artists. The beautiful box measures approximately 3.75 inches (on the hinged side) by 3.5 inches and is approximately 2.5 inches tall.

The main sphere of this craft is to develop beautiful high quality handcrafted items made of Siberian wood and birch bark. Each item is carefully crafted using secret technologies having been inherited from generations to generations over many centuries. Traditions and secrets of our ancestors as well as new technologies, have been developed by our artists, and skilled craftsmen of today. Each wonderful item is 100% handcrafted in the Russian Siberian cities of Tomsk and Novosibirsk.
All our crafts without exception are made from ecologically clean materials - Siberian Cedar and Birch Bark. They combine the best traditions of Russian culture and Russian Folklore. We make a variety of gifts and items such as small boxes for jewelry, powder-boxes, Siberian figures, hampers of different sizes, things for setting the table, etc. We specialize in fine ligature of multi-layered carving patterns. The light reflection and shade on the golden and velvety layers of birch bark give the ornament volume and depth and make them truly a unique work of art. It is amazing how exquisite and refined the artwork is even at first sight. We hope you enjoy this spectacular workmanship for many years to come.
