The Matryoshka

These gals are popping up everywhere lately for me. I know the trend started a few years ago, but I predict that we will be seeing more of these little folk wonders in the up coming year.

One of the most notable of Russian crafts is that of the Matryoshka, or nesting doll principle. Famously perfected by FabergĂ© in the late 1800’s the craft lives on today with Russian Designer Yar Rassadin whose Pantone Matryoshka collection takes inspiration from both the Pantone color matching system and a minimalist UFO style, making for a uniquely modern twist on the nearly 120 year old art form.

Maybe make some your self here.

I want to make paper ones!
