The company manufactures the famous Vyatka matryoshkas. The painted wooden dolls remain a symbol of Russian culture and one of the main souvenirs that tourists bring back from Russia.
Kirov manufacturer Souvenir was established in 1937. Back then it was just a small cooperative, but over time traditional arts and crafts grew into an industry of their own. Today the company manufactures over 400 types of products, and the number keeps growing.
Recently the company started making artisan goods and custom-made matryoskas based on the customer's sketches. It also makes Russian Bingo souvenir sets. In 2016-2017, Souvenir produced 100,000 various souvenir items, bingo and chess sets.
Traditional Vyatka matryoshka dolls and Russian Bingo souvenir sets are made of natural hardwood - birch and basswood.
