IMPORTANT DETAILS: Many of our products are handmade creations of traditional folk arts and artistic crafts, made by workshops and separate artists. This is the reason why each of such items is unique and usually has its own unrepeatable details, even though in general the same type of products may look the same. To understand the extent of difference you may look at different photos of the items that have the same name and ID, or at the additional photos provided under the main one of the product. It is also possible that sometimes the ordered item might be slightly different from the one represented on the catalog. Thus, we suggest you to coordinate such matters with our manager during the order confirmation call.
