Russian costumes differ a lot from each other. Each province had its own traditional costume. For example, black embroidery was traditional for the Belgorod Region (southern Russia), whereas costumes of peasant women in the Ryazan Region (central Russia) were embroidered mostly with red.

There are very few traditional costumes left in Russia. Fortunately, there are Russians who want to preserve this part of national heritage. One of them is Sergei Glebushkin, who has collected over 300 traditional Russian costumes from remote Russian villages for over 25 years. He showed RIA Novosti part of his collection.
