Familiar to every student needlework from the USSR: Forgot about him in Russia, but they pay good money abroad


Every summer in the USSR teacher severely mocked the children. To think only, the kids were sent to the forests, fields, parks and other wooded and not very terrain, so that they would disappear all sorts of leaves, blades, pestles / stamens, dried in the thick books of the classics of Marxism-Leninism, and then brought to school!

Of course it is a joke! Maybe even stupid!

But I heard the conversation of two mammies at the parent meeting, who discussed the request of the teacher to children in the summer more leaflets, herbs and flowers. Moms are very seriously indignant:

How so, our petua and Vasya are forced to go to the forest or park and collect leaves. And suddenly their clashes bit or the dog scares. Does the teacher himself can not collect such leaves for children.

In short, there is no limit of teacher cruelty!

Meanwhile, the Soviet school and the collection of herbarium (this is the so-called forced drying of plants) were two inalienable things, just like cow and milk, chocolate and diathesis, school and summer work. In general, every summer, all teachers sent Soviet children.

With the development of a new school and pedagogy on the herbarium, for some reason, for some reason, a large and greasy cross put. Rarely which teacher asks children to put plants for the lessons of environmental education or labor. Apparently thick books ended — all replaced smartphones. And the word Herbarium many children consider abusive.

Meanwhile, now in Europe and all sorts of Americas, the art of collecting herbarium is one of the most sought-after and is connected with the care of people’s conservation. Many Europeans and Americans want to show that they are not all the same and their seriousness of nature cares.

And in order to hit yourself with a heel in the chest and show all that you care about ecology, many hang in their apartments and houses dried flowers, leaves.

Of course, it is not just like that, the plants are thoroughly dried in special presses or under glass, after which they are clamped in the frame between two stalks. It turns out a peculiar panel of dry, which can stand on the table, hang on the wall, some even stick the leaves on the ceiling.

The price tag on such panels is impressive: a small frame with three dried spikelets can pull 120 — 220 pounds, and this, notice, from 11 to 20 thousand rubles.

Recently, the additional staining of dried plants with gold enamel paint from aerosol cans is very popular.

The demand for such panels beats all records. Our friend, Maria, opened the store on ETSI and sells eco-paintings abroad. Only over the past two years she has made more than 800 sales, which for ETSI is a very cool indicator.

The average check is about 80-120 euros.

The store brought her more than 5 million rubles of profits, gave the opportunity to quit from work and engage together with her husband solely by the manufacture of eco-compositions.

Would you hang such a panel in your apartment?
