Map of Traditional Costumes - UKRAINE
This is my first Map-Card from Ukraine and it's a special Map, because it includes the main regional variations of the Ukranian Traditional Costumes with its typical embroidery. Thank you very much Anna for this beautiful postcard and your funny message. This postcard took 8 days to arrive!
The traditional dress of Ukraine is a centuries old unique and distinctive emblem of the Ukrainian culture. The traditional dress of Ukraine is full of ornamental designs, fantastic embroidery and remarkable exposition. Even today, the national dress of Ukraine is hand woven and fabulously decorated. The embroidery is an ancient practice which is applied to the traditional dress of Ukraine and it is varied from region to region in the country, embellished with the antiquated motifs and harmonic arrangements full of colors and exotic stitches.
