Small businesses founded under the Small Business for Sustainable Development Program have formed the foundation of interactive museum complex Kolomensky Bazaar
On November 29, 2013, a new project “KOLOMYANKA – from the Past to Present: New Vision of Our City’s Past!” was presented in the city of Kolomna, Moscow Oblast, at the community center Dom Ozerova.
This project was initiated by the Kolomyanka Young Designer Support Studio that was created as a result of FSD’s Small Business for Sustainable Development Program carried out in Kolomna. One of the key areas of the Studio is to promote eco fashions – apparel and accessories made of natural organic fabrics, such as linen, cotton, hemp, wool, silk, nettles, corn and bamboo.
Along with the appearance of a designer studio in Kolomna, the Project also supported such small business projects as Kolomna Streetcar Desire (a sightseeing excursion), Gallery of Crafts (a blacksmith’s) and others.
The project presented by the Kolomaynka Studio is a part of a new interactive museum project Kolomna Bazaar, where folk crafts will be presented not only by local artisans, but guests will be able to take part in an interactive learning process.
It is of note that this unusual museum has appeared thanks to projects support by FSD.
The Young Designer Support Studio established under the Small Business for Sustainable Development Program organized a fashion show of clothes and accessories that have been created from organic fabrics, such as linen, cotton, wool and silk.
