It is true that Ukrainian museums and private collections have a very limited collection of authentic male embroidered shirts. Usually, such shirts were so worn down that people simply didn’t donate them to museums. So, we’re more than happy to share with you a few extremely beautiful and sophisticated men’s shirts embellished with whitework and other embroidery techniques. They are in mint shape and overwhelm you with their uniqueness and the amount of labor and skill needed to produce such artful pieces of clothes.
The embroidered shirts are exhibited in the Ukrainian national center of folk culture “Ivan Honchar Museum” in Kyiv
These male shirts are from Vinnytsia region (Central Ukraine), the early 20th century.
