Female winter clothing from Ovruch district, Zhytomyr region of Ukraine (northern part of the country, so called “Polissia” area or woodland). Polissia is a region of dense forests and swamps, that’s why the clothing traditions here are a little bit extraordinary.
The outfit consists of a long embroidered shirt called “chekhlyk”, a woven skirt called “litnyk”, a woven apron (carpet weaving technique is used to make it), a woolen coat called “svyta”, a fabric belt called “kraika”, a necklace, and a headdress (includes a coif and a piece called “namitka” – long rectangular piece of cloth wrapped around the head). During harsh winter weather, women wore a second skirt, another warm woven apron, and one more fabric belt.
As for footwear, leather boots were used in winter, but not everyone could afford them, so women often used puttees and bast shoes. During cold weather, the puttees reached above the knee to cover as much skin as possible. Though, they were not comfy at all because the fabric wasn’t stretchy and hugged the leg too tightly. A person could use such puttees only for a couple of hours or even less.
