More on the costume and embroideryl from Sokal' region, Ukraine


 Hello all, 
I recently received a request for information from the Sokal' region of Ukraine. This is in the north of the L'viw region, but also overlaps north into the Volyn' region and west over the present border into the Hrubieszow  region of Poland. I have already written two articles about this region;

 but in my earlier posts I felt constrained as to the amount of material which I should put into an article, whereas more recently I have realized that there is really no reason to restrict the amount of material given. The embroidery in this region is typically all black, at least on clothing, although in more recent years there has been a tendency to add color to the designs, as in the example above. Take a look at my other two articles. In this one i shall simply give more examples of the embroidery and the clothing.




The following charts are from 'Embroidery of L'viw Oblast' by L. Krawchuk.






 


Here are some schematics of womens' shirts from this region.These sketches and the following drawings of embroidery are from 'Flowering Folk Art' by O. Kul'chytska.






 This is a man's wedding shirt.



More embroidery designs.















Various photos  of women's clothing from this region. These  images  were taken in a museum in Ukraine.














These images are taken from the publication 'The Preservation of a Heritage' put out by The Ukrainian Museum in New York.






































Some pictures from other sources

 












Here is some material from the Polish side of the current border.



 Here are some examples of men's clothing.

The sash on this mannequin is from Podillia or Bukovyna, not Sokal'

 

Thank you for reading, I hope that you have found this interesting, informative and perhaps inspiring. This type of embroidery could be used for many things
