This collection was carefully curated (and mostly hand-drawn) by a Lithuanian-Ukrainian couple to give you the best idea of the soviet design and lifestyle. We've made this to show many wacky, interesting (and often forgotten) things made in the USSR. Note: this is not an attempt to glorify or whitewash the soviet past.

One illustration takes a few hours to complete, so it's a rather long manual process. Hope you like it! If you would like to see some specific soviet item here, drop us a message.
