Ukraine. There are many different winter garments in Ukraine. Today, such folk outerwear is almost totally replaced by modern clothes. But our ancestors used thick woolen coats, fur coats, sheepskin coats, and similar garments during the cold season. Here are several examples.

Male outerwear from Lemko region of Ukraine (western part of the country), the early 20th century. It is called “chuhania”

Vintage Ukrainian woolen coat called “svyta”. Ovruch district, Zhytomyr region of Ukraine. It is a women’s winter outerwear. The bottom part of the coat is wide and pleated. It is traditional for Ukrainian female outer garments to be white-colored. This particular svyta has no decoration though, often, such garments are embellished with embroidery, braiding, applique, etc.
