Khokhloma painting as a traditional art handicraft appeared in the seventeeth century in the Nizhny Novgorod province to be named after the big tradeful village Khokhloma that receive many wooden products for sale. Khokhloma utensils were initially made only in monasteries for the royalty. But such beauty was doomed to spread much further.

In the nineteenth century Khokhloma goods could be found not only in Russia, but also in Persia, India, Central Asia, America and Australia. It’s still rather popular in many countries.

“Khokhloma painting” factory has been the largest producer of wooden khokhloma goods since the mid 1960s. Semenov city is called the capital of khokhloma by right.
