How to buy vyshyvanka in Kiev
Vyshyvanka is not just a linen embroidered shirt - it is a symbol of the national pride of Ukrainians. The first embroideries appeared on the territory of Ukraine in the IV century, they were found during excavations of Scythian burial mounds.

The ornament on vyshyvanka tells a whole story with the help of threads made by the hands of a master. One of the main patterns are poppies, they were embroidered by the wifes and mothers of soldiers who went to war. They had to protect their loved ones during the battles.

Vyshyvankas were passed from father to son, they were a valuable devotee for marriage and an indispensable attribute of any celebration.

Now vyshyvanka is a trend popular all over the world. Ukrainians dress them on holidays and you can often see celebrities strolling in them along the red carpet, and in everyday life.
