Kadomsky Veniz - traditional Russian embroidery.


 

 

Kadom, Ryazan Oblast, Russia
 

The embroidery Kadomsky Veniz was born in one of the most picturesque places in Russia – Ryazan.
The beauty of nature inspires many craftspeople in this land.

Kadom Veniz got its name from Venice nuns, who were invited by Peter I (also known as Peter the Great)
to the monastery of Kadom to teach Russian women how to make Italian lace.
He was enchanted with the beauty of Venetian lace, and upon his return to Russia,
he ordered the same kind of craft to be created at home.
But Veniz is created by the needs of the Russian market.
The encouragement of new and useful, profitable businesses and crafts
was part of the dominating mercantile ideology in Europe.
Till the 20th century Veniz had been a guild or local home business, with small workshops.
Although in the 19th century M. Novosiltseva, realizing how popular this lace is,
not only bought the work from women, but hired the embroiderers to fulfill all the needs in this lace.
She also organized teaching and enrolling new craftswomen and expanded the manufacturing of Veniz.

The Soviet type of economy did not allow local or private business,
and the embroiderers were united into the guild “Probuzhdenie” (awakening),
and then it was transformed into a clothing factory.
During the 20th century another type of handwork disappeared--filet embroidery.
The lace was time - and money-consuming and could not fit into the practical fashion and lifestyle of common people.
Actually, the works of this manufacture had always been for wealthy people’s demands only;
such extravagance was not affordable for common people.
Because of that, the lace creation was out of demand,
except for museums and gifts to international VIPs.

In the 1970s enthusiasts made an attempt to resurrect Veniz.
They interviewed old people who could still remember how to make these kind of laces.
And they realized that for so many years it had become a completely unique Russian lace.
First of all it, is unique for Ryazan, because this land is full of colors,
but Veniz stands out of tradition with its northern whiteness and clearness.
Russian embroiderers invented their own techniques of needle embroidery
imitating the bobbin lace and added Russian themes.
In 1984, blouses of marquisette with hand - and machine-made lace
were exhibited in Moscow and it became a hit.
Orders came from all over the country.
The factory expanded;
they made bedcovers, table cloths, dresses, gowns, pillow cases, children’s clothing, etc.

After 1992, there was a splash of interest in traditional crafts.
And since then, under the name of Kadom Veniz,
this factory creates the beauty of Russian laces for various buyers.

The artists are inspired by Russian themes, fairy tales and nature.

Although it is hard to believe that this intricate work is durable,
people did pass such laces from generation to generation for decades and even centuries.
You have the opportunity to have such a piece of beauty in your home,
which will definitely be an heirloom.
