Production cooperative "Slavutasts" was created in 1994 as a unification of the best artists from Belarus to produce and market products of folk art and contemporary crafts.
From 1994 to 2007 PC "Slavutasts" carried out its activities in the National Gallery of decorative art in the National Cultural and Educational Center Office of the President of the Republic of Belarus (street – October 5). In 2008, the company moved to Troizk suburb of Minsk and opened the city Gallery of Crafts "Slavutasts". The gallery “Slavutyya Maistre" has been operating here since 2000.
Since 2002, we have a small gift shop in the new building of the railway station of Minsk. This small chain of stores can sell their products in more than 400 craftsmen and artists from all over Belarus.
Here you will find art ceramics, wood, leather, beads, glass, straw, flax, wicker, metal, and many others.
English Queen, the Pope, presidents and prime ministers of many countries bought gifts here. We can also be useful to you in choosing good gifts made by talented Belarusian artists.
