Real sample

When creating our gift, we were inspired by a real photo of the packaging of gifts on the front: the appearance of the bag and the packaging of cigarettes "Surf" appeared from there, in addition, we added a few more things to it.



Bag with hand embroidery
"For the Soldier of the Red Army"

A gift on the front! Sending gifts from the rear was often timed to various holidays: New year, Red Army Day or The day of the great October Socialist Revolution. Such gifts were not standardized, often collected by women and children left behind. The contents of such gifts are very different: from stationery and personal hygiene items, to sweets, cigarettes and matches.
