These craftswomen are ethnic Tatars and the members of the 'Ebiem Project' which is the Tatar word for 'grandmother'.
They make woolen socks with decorative patterns and traditional Tatar caps known as tubeteika.

"What you're buying is not just caps, slippers, or mittens. You're buying the warmth of a grandmother's hands."
