The statement “Omnia nea mecum porto” attributed to Cicero alludes to spiritual values, but later it obtained new meaning. Now it is a question of material benefits. The exhibition acquaints visitors with the RME collection of accessories to the traditional costume of the peoples of Russia. The  collection  includes  various devices for carrying personal belongings.

In  ethnographic literature, there is no consensus what should be understood  under the  term “accessory” in the context of traditional costume. It could be costume supplements  such as headgear, footwear, and adornments or specific “clothes” for hands and feet, for example, gloves, mittens, stockings, socks, etc. Exhibition curatorial team choose artifacts that played a significant role in creating the  image of person who wears  traditional costume. These details could tell a lot about  their owner, his or hers social status and occupation.


 There are more than 150 exhibits on the exhibition. These are textile and leather bags and sacks, saddle-bags for storage and carrying of large things and even for carrying children, purses and famous Russian pouches – lakomniki, various tobacco pouches,  flasks and vessels for the powder, bullets, and kits for making fire or tea.
