It is worth getting acquainted with his activities, he is a real enthusiast and professional who thanks to many years of experience is a master in what he does. Visiting and learning with Valerij is obligatory if you want to learn about nettle fiber. He taught me a lot and Im really greatfull for that. I noticed that nettles in this region of Russia are much richer in fiber than those from Warmia or Wysoczyzna Elbląska.

He also built a spinning wheel and loom himself :). A study visit in Saransk and the surrounding area was prepared perfectly by Valerij, besides learning was also visiting museums (there are lot of them to visit ..) and a trip to the ethno-village, where the old ethnic group – Erzja nurtures and shows its traditions, including textile .
