Design process and production
Russian folklore came from Slavic mythology.
Folklore appeals to a primal element in human nature. Regardless of the society
in which it functions, folklore deals with very basic desires and needs. This makes it
seem like a repository of ancient ideas.
In earlier times, before the modern mass- production of books, grannies, nurses and female servants used to tell children tales. Today folk tales in the written form are still an important part of the Russian child’s experience. Those Folk tales provide the Soviet child with a first impression of the costumes and moral conceptions.
