Rich and beautiful embroidery pattern on the sleeve of Ukrainian women’s embroidered shirt, western Ukraine, most probably the early 20th century. Floral needlework design is combined with geometric.
This is truly beautiful. Ukrainian embroidery is really one of I kind. Whenever I see a piece I can't help but examine it in detail and appreciate all the details. This is from the Hutsul region, right? Some of the motives reminded me of nyzynka. Definitely not Boiko. During my trip to Halychyna last year I saw something similar too. Next month I will fly to Turkey and stay at my father's property in Istanbul. Later I'm planning to visit Ukraine again. Can't wait to collect more motives!
