Traditional folk ornaments became the basis for the decoration of the fir tree - craftsmen from Adygea made large velvet balls in the goldwork technique. Traditional ornaments of the peoples of Adygea and elements from the coat of arms of the republic were also used in the golden garlands.

Adygean goldwork embroidery is one of the unique crafts in the Western Caucasus. Since ancient times Adygean craftswomen have skillfully mastered the techniques of goldwork, subtly thinking over their ornamental compositions.

A distinctive feature of Adygean ornamental art is symmetrically arranged elements representing the animal and plant world, trefoils or five-leaves.

Very often there is an image of a ram's horn - the ornament performed a magical role of protection from evil spirits. The plant motifs of the pattern were also connected with the Adyghe cult views - they believed in the magical power of trees, which could cure illnesses and bring happiness.
