In the past, when most clothing pieces in Ukraine were handmade (woven, sewn, and decorated by hand), there was a comparatively little assortment of thread dyes available. The most popular were read&black colors of embroidery, but in some areas, people preferred white threads, indigo-dyed threads, or colorful patterns (yellow, brown, green, blue, orange, etc.). If a 17th-18th-century woman saw modern mouline threads with hundreds of colors and shades, they would be wonderstruck.
Here is a great exhibition of vintage and modern embroidered clothing.
