The fashion house's atelier creatively assimilated traditional Pudozh embroidery into wool and silk crepe pieces. A blue crepe dress was embellished with cotton mouliné thread and corals, made to resemble the Northern cloudberry. Approximately 150 hours were spent embroidering the dress. More pieces remind one of the natural riches of the forests and lakes of Karelia. Individually woven coral cloudberries hang from a blue basque with Yelets lace, and a gray lace corset is decorated with river pearls.
There are several garments in the collection, which include one of the brand's most beloved techniques – beading knitwear. Traditional Karelian influences can be seen in the sketches of these pieces. The geometric shape of the "lemekh" was incorporated into knit patterns and into the cascading fringed beading upon corsets and accessories. Bird silhouettes atop a gray wool jacket are covered in various stitching techniques, referring to cross-stitching schemes.
