In the tiny town of Tarusa on the bank of the Oka River, time seems to have stopped. There is no railroad to the town, and its one- and two-story houses are as if stuck in time, retaining all the features of the 18th century.

The folk craft itself, associated with painting burnt clay, appeared even earlier. In the 13th century near the city, in addition to limestone, found large reserves of clay. It was suitable for firing. It is the clay that distinguishes products from Tarusa - it is red in color.

But the international vocation of this folk art was already in the 20th century. Traditional artistic techniques were supplemented by modern technical solutions. Numerous workshops were abolished and a single factory appeared. On its basis, the "Research Institute of Artistic Industry" was established.

Today only a small part of the plant is in operation, but the production is alive and happy customers. The store of Russian ceramics from Tarusa offers the following products to choose from:

  1. cookware,
  2. kitchen utensils,
  3. wall and table panels,
