Description

This is hand embroidery only, without any machine embroidery.

Clothes of native land, like Borshchevskaya shirt, can tell a lot interesting about historical events and society development.  Borschiv shirts are very often indentified with tragedy of Tatar invasion, during which all men of majority villages of Borshciv region were killed. But you should not dwell on only this interpretation of Ukrainian embroidery shirts (vishivanka or vyshivanka) origin.
A lot of Interesting legends about colorfully embroidered shirts on a black base exist in Ukraine. For example, one girl wanted to catch a guy's attention, who loved flowers.  Unfortunately, she had only daisies on her kitchen garden, and could not get seeds of any other flowers. The girl even asked landlords to sell her seeds, but all was in vain. Landlords just laughed with her wishes and did not give her anything, despite the fact that their own gardens were full of different flowers, some of them girl had never seen before. Then a clever girl decided to "grow" flowers on canvas, which are not afraid neither heat nor cold. During all winter she was embroidering flowers on green linen. She finished it, and on the Easter wore embroidered shirt to go to church. In unique colors and cross stitch flowers she seemed unearthly creature not only in the eyes of the guy she loved, but all villagers. Later, all girls in that village made themselves similar linen blouses, vyshyvanka folk shirt, and even landlords envied them. Borshchiv embroidery is one of the best among ethnic embroidery.


It will be better if you can specify not only its size, but also the length of the product and also the personal parameters.
