The Estonian Folk
Art and Craft Union acknowledged
our Sinilnik Collection as
Certified Estonian Artisanal Craft
The design team of the Sinilnik Collection included Õnne Uus, Pavel Varunin and Kairi Güsson.
The Sinilnik Collection was born out of love for textile printing and handicraft in honour of the Prostatov family of textile printers who were still active in Kolkja at the beginning of the 20th century.
Sinilniks were the textile printers in the villages of the Lake Peipus area. The tradition of textile printing was brought to these villages most likely by Russian Old Believers.
The collection is made up by two sub-collections – the Traditional and the Modern Collection.
