Khokhloma painting on wood is a traditional type of Russian decorative work that was started in the second half of the 17th century on the territory of what is today Koverninsky region of Nizhnii Novgorod oblast. The name of this type of painting was given to it after the trade village of Khokhloma - also located in the Nizhnii Novgorod oblast. From the 18th until the beginning of the 20th century this village was known as the trade center for the products of Khokhloma painting.
