Womens-festive-clothing avaUkrainian traditional clothing of the end of the 19th century – the early 20th century still had a lot of features historically typical for this country. Women used embroidered garments, bonnet-like headdresses, colorful pieces of clothes, woven items, and richly decorated outerwear and bags. Today most of such vintage outfits belong to museums and private collectors. The costumes we'd like to show you right now belong to the large collection of the National Museum of the History of Ukraine.
