An exhibition of delicate Vologda lace will be organized within the framework of the Days of Russia in Kazakhstan on October 15-22.

One of the most valuable crafts from the Vologda Region - laces will be on display in the National Museum of Kazakhstan.

Vologda has always been one of the main centres of Russian lace tatting, and in the 19th century it became the most famous one. It was that time when lace-makers began to tat lace patterns in the form of wonderful stars and snowflakes. Vologda lace reminds of hoarfrost on winter glass, which will disappear under the first rays of the March sun. It looks like a thin spider line, which will be torn by a waft of wind.

Vologda lace has won deserved fame and world-wide recognition for its high artistic value, rich ornament, and excellent workmanship.
