By the way
Kadom veniz is a variant of fine needle embroidery. According to legend, Peter I, wanting the Russian nobility to wear clothes with lace, sent Venetian lacemakers to the convent of Kadoma. They were supposed to teach the nuns their art. On the basis of Venetian lace, Kadom needlewomen created their own version, called “veniz”. Unlike lace, it is made with a needle and thread and has a basis in the form of matter.
