Russia's Yakutia brands: from birch tableware to ritual cups

Russia's Yakutia brands: from birch tableware to ritual cups

Birch tableware, jewelry, brides dress, ancient rock paintings on the Lena Pillars, ritual cups - called chorons, and other objects of the local cultural heritage are among Yakutias suggested brands.

A group of experts from the Center for the Yakut people’s non-material cultural heritage is working on a special list of cultural heritage objects, which will be branded.

Experts say the unique centuries-long Yakut traditions and technologies may be lost in the industrial production, including abroad. Branding the cultural objects will announce them the national symbols, which were revived in the 1990s after the Soviet times tendency to abandon the local crafts.

TASS tells about Yakut symbols and crafts.

In the Soviet times, many traditions and objects, related to the local traditional culture, shamans, crafts, were lost or forgotten. Nowadays, the locals revive not only traditional skills of making objects, but also restore their spiritual and cultural meanings, the Centers Head Agafya Zakharova said
