Artisan textile arts play an important role in Ukrainian culture, especially in Ukrainian wedding traditions. Ukrainian embroidery, weaving, and lace-making are used in traditional folk dress and in traditional celebrations. Ukrainian embroidery varies depending on the region of origin, and the designs have a long history of motifs, compositions, choice of colors, and types of stitches. Use of color is very important and has roots in Ukrainian folklore. Embroidery motifs found in different parts of Ukraine are preserved in the Rushnyk Museum in Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyi.

Traditional embroidery patterns from Polissia region of Ukraine (northern part of the country). Male and female shirts are embroidered with red, black, and white threads. Red embroidery on a white background is typical for this area. The embroidery designs are often geometric rather than floral.
