More than once in a dream, oh my dear,
Your image appears to me, so wonderful,
As it was shining in the spring of youth,
In the best moments of fresh love.
Balancing on the verge of restraint and elegance, tenderness and passion.
That is why, though the color palette of the collection is dominated by contrasts colors – black and white, sometimes their restraint is interrupted by delicate and rich ones: mint, lilac, cherry, purple and blue.
A Borshchiv embroidery vyshyvanka impresses with the variety of patterns and is rightfully considered a historical and cultural value and pride of Ternopil region. It is distinguished by densely stitched floral and geometric patterns. Black ornamental compositions with the slight interspersing of color motifs on shirts and blouses are the main decorative accents in Borshchiv festive outfits.
“Nyzynka” (nyz) is a technique characteristic of Ukrainian embroidery, that creates geometric patterns with a clear diagonal. This is a counted-thread running stitch “needle forward” and it is put from below. In women’s vyshyvankas (embroidered blouses) nyz was used to embroider an “ustavka” – a rectangular fragment of the top of the sleeve (it could be a separate element of the cut or continuous with the sleeve), a collar, cuffs, a bosom and “pohrudky” – vertical stripes on the front of the breast. On men’s shirts nyz was used to embroider a collar, a “manishka” (dickey) and cuffs.
