Krestetsky Embroidery is the traditional embroidery art originated in Krestetsky district in 1860. The main idea is to fill the linen net with fancy patterns of a thin thread.

Along with Gzhel ceramics and Khokhloma painting Krestetsky Embroidery is one of the symbols of Russian folk culture. Products with Krestetsky patterns were created for such famous people as Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Yeltsin, England's Queen Elizabeth, Queen of the Netherlands, King Juan Carlos of Spain and others.

Krestetsky Embroidery products are considered the cultural heritage of Russia. There is their own museum on the territory of the factory, which contains more than 50 unique historical exhibits, and the large part of the collection is in major museums of Russia, including the State Hermitage Museum, the State Russian Museum, the Folk Art Museum and many others.

During the century-old history of the company products with Krestetsky embroidery were exhibited in 47 countries and were awarded a great number of diplomas, prizes and medals. The first award was received in 1911 at the Turin international exhibition.

Today Krestetsky Embroidery factory implements an ambitious project on the revitalization and the popularizing of the traditional embroidery art in Russia and abroad. Equipment is upgraded, lost embroidery techniques are restored, and the best masters and artists return to the factory. The range of products will soon be expanded and brought into line with the latest fashion trends. Russian designers create new clothes collections, the household items (tablecloths, napkins, towels) and souvenirs.
