The birch has been a traditional symbol of Russia since antiquity. This art form began nearly two thousand years ago and is still a valued craft today. Because of the natural properties of the birch bark which have a leather-like softness, this material can be worked in a similar manner to leather.

The birch bark has antibacterial and antiseptic qualities and is thus an ideal basis for storage boxes of any kind. Especially jewelry will keep clean and shiny due to the natural environment within the boxes.

Some people claim that birch bark is the eighth wonder of the world. It has a velvety smooth surface and is very pleasant to the touch. Most of our Russian birch bark boxes are one-of-a-kind or available in limited quantities only.
