Straw souvenirs from Belarus
21 Jun 2013 | From Olga of Belarus
A postcard showing a Belarusian girl in a field and some Belarusian straw souvenirs. Belarusian grew fond of straw for its beauty and warmth. When skillfully handled, it can be turned into a wonderful piece of art. Straw wreaths, bundles and figurines were used in Belarusian folk rites.
