Rulinen Group became the official partner of the International Fashion Festival “Velvet Seasons in Sochi” – one of the largest annual forums of Russian fashion industry professionals. It is quite a logical move for the company, as both the Sochi festival and Rulinen Group pursue the same objective: to restore domestic textile industry and bring back high quality of and claim for Russian products and fashion. “High quality and consumer properties of products are of most importance for us”, – tells President of Rulinen Group, Vice-President of the National Academy of Fashion Industry Nikolay Aleksov.

Russian linen fabrics

Russian textile market is practically full with import. It is known that cotton is not grown in Russia, and its world market price since the beginning of this year has gone 40% up. All this certainly affects the price of fabrics, and, as a result, the price for the clothes. But there is a native Russian fibre – linen, which due to its qualities does not cede to but excels cotton. About the process of creation of the fabrics out of linen at the modern enterprise tells the fabrics’ designer of the Rulinen Group Elena Vasil’eva.

There are companies which principles of development are rather an exception to the rule than its confirmation. Exactly like these market players is the Rulinen Group, which holds a unique business strategy for a modern Russia. In 2010 the Rulinen Group, representing the production of OAO “Vologodsky textil’”, opened a new direction of activity. The Company launched production of industrial collections of men’s and women’s wear made of linen. Moreover, the wear is fashionable, stylish and challenging, which has been long waited at the Russian market.

Rulinen Group: Linen – fine materia

”Linen – the King of fashion!”, - perhaps, this phrase, which became a motto of the International linen festival in Vologda, will become a leitmotif of the current summer season. After all, the trendsetters were not afraid to be decisive: the linen models presented this spring at the catwalks telescoped into a patchy variety of colours, styles, details and handles. About the advantages of linen and about the way how trend collections of fabrics are created tells the fabrics’ designer of the Rulinen Group Elena Vasil’eva.

According to the magazine ”Clothing industry” , № 3, June, 2011

The Future lies with the Russian linen

One cannot imagine Vologda without legendary Vologodsky linen. “The Russian silk” here has been originally grown and processed, and before the Revolution the label "Russian linen" was estimated at the world market as high as “French cognac”, “Indian tea” or “Brazilian coffee”. To revive a linen culture in Russia, to bring back a bygone fame and to show to the whole world that the future lies with the ecologically clean linen –that is the mission of the first International linen festival, where general partner was the Rulinen Group.
