THE GOLDEN RING OF RUSSIA

IVANOVO


Ivanovo is located on the banks of the Volga River, 300 km north-east of Moscow.
 

The first settlement was founded in the 16th century. The peasants there engaged in woodcarving, preparing dye-stuff and weaving flax linen. Flax weaving was the key trade.
 

In the middle of the 18th century Ivanovo became the center of the country's textile industry, the so-called "cotton empire".

Ivanovo cotton fabrics were in great demand not only all over Russia, but also abroad in Britain, Persia and other countries.
