Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my project!

I am Natalia Silva, the designer and artist behind Russian Folk Art "Limited Edition" playing cards. In March 2016 I released Russian Folk Art "COLLECTOR'S EDITION" Deck, which was limited to 75 decks ONLY and had a beautiful High Gloss on the tuck box and back cards. The deck was sold out just in a few days. 

I received a lot of request from my backers to have a similar deck but at affordable price, so I decided to create a Limited Edition deck (which will be 1000 decks only and printed by the USPCC). 

I am excited to share my art with you, and I hope that with your support, we can make this deck a reality.

 

  

ABOUT THIS DECK:

This deck was inspired by traditional Russian wood painting style and national ornament - Khokhloma.

Khokhloma known for it's vivid flower patterns, red and gold colors over a black background.

It first appeared in the second half of the 17th century in what is today known as the Koverninsky District of the Nizhny Novgorod Oblast. The handicraft was named Khokhloma after a trade settlement in the same oblast, where craftsmen had been known for making and selling their handmade goods between the 18th and early 20th centuries.

The main colors used in Khokhloma painting – gold, black and red. Sometimes these colors are complemented with green, brown, orange, yellow. Motifs used in painting are mainly natural: it is grass, flowers, berries and birds.
