How to order a towel (rushnik) in Neglyubka

This week  I went in the village Neglyubka, where the women weave beautiful towels. However, we are going as a teacher of the Belarusian language, but I managed to ask how people can order a towel. My question has puzzled the woman who teaches the children to weave towels. She kept thinking, how to respond. Finally she said that she could not say exactly how much it will cost a ready towel . 

So, in order, you must determine which towel you want.

A. In length (they are from 1.5 to 5.5 meters)
B. The color (red and white, black and white, colored).

A note: the red and white towel 2 meter costs about $ 100. It's very cheap, I think.

If you decide to contact with Neglyubka, go to this site: Here you can write a letter, and I think it will help to contact with Neglyubka. In any case, someone will help you, give the necessary phone numbers and you can talk to a woman who weaves towels.
