Palekh is an ancient settlement on the Vladimir-Suzdal land, the first mention of which dates back to the beginning of the XII century.
The fame of Palekh began with iconography, when, by the middle of the 18th century, an independent Palekh style in iconography had formed in the industry.
Palekh icons of this time are counted among the gold fund of Russian icon painting.
In 1989, after the liquidation of the only organization of artists in Palekh of the Palekh art and production workshops, by the decision of the Council of the labor collective, a cooperative "Association of Palekh Artists" was organized, which included most of the artists, auxiliary workers and engineering personnel.
Having started its activities practically from scratch, the cooperative has become a leading fishing enterprise. Today, the association employs masters to manufacture traditional semi-finished products from papier-mâché and about 120 lacquer miniature artists, among which there are many members of the Union of Russian Artists. The team has developed many family dynasties of hereditary artists. Leading masters are regular exhibitors.
