Head Matryoshka's are part of our ’Secrets of Russia’ -collection. A few years ago Aamu Song and Johan Olin set on a journey to explore Russian manufacturing secrets. The travels, which took us from Moscow to Urals, into Siberia and to the Caucasus, resulted in collaboration with tens of traditional manufacturers. After each factory visit – and after we learned each of the traditional manufacturing skills – we designed new products based on these traditions.
