The Nolinsk matryoshka is crafted by traditional artists from the rural town of Nolinsk in the Kirov region of Russia. She is hand-painted and decorated with brightly colored red and blue flowers, as is traditional in this northern region. This is the baby of nesting dolls, only having 3 pieces and standing only 3 " tall, therefore ideal stocking stuff, whimsical gift, or party favor. If you like to collect traditional dolls, you definitely need one from Nolinsk! This babushka is sure to have a place in any collection of traditional Russian handcrafts, adding a bright and vibrant touch to the display.

Special Message: There is a war on, folks. In response to Russia's deplorable invasion of Ukraine, the US has waged economic war on Russia. While well intended, the sanctions hurt large and small, oligarchs and artisans, and have greatly hindered our 29 year old business. While we hope to stay afloat, the hurdles we now face importing from Russia are many. The cost of shipping goods out of Russia doubled overnight, and US Customs now charges huge tariffs on our products once they arrive, many of which used to be duty free. In the coming days many prices will be adjusted to include new shipping rates and tariffs. It is our hope that this is a temporary necessity and peace will prevail.
