Ukrainian traditional embroidery
The Ukrainian traditional female clothes vary from region to region, but share two common threads: abudance of amber and coral necklaces , flowers, colorful ribbons, pom-poms and amazingly beautiful complex embroidery. Ukrainian embroidery has been known and loved worldwide, since it has been called a “top trend of the year” by american Vogue, but very few people outside of Ukraine know that ukrainian embroidery is actually…. a code. A code written with elements, that are made in cross-stitch technique. These elements stand for letters, numbers, shapes, sometimes even whole words. People back in days could read the whole life story of someone, just looking at the sleeve of their shirt.
