Merezhivo cropped blouse has a voluminous airy shape. Gathered puffy sleeves are generously decorated with embroidery and hand-cut Richelieu technique. The breast line is crafted with the traditional handmade “Zbiranka” technique. Floral motifs in the embroidery convey a romantic summer story. Handmade contrasting stitches emphasize embroidered elements. The cuffs and neckline are lavishly hand-embellished with silver and gold beads (beads are 24 carats of galvanized gold and silver).
We have used high-quality linen fabrics and durable thick embroidery threads to craft this garment. At first, the parts of the garment are getting embroidered and then assembled together by our craftsmen in Kyiv at our own production atelier. Richelieu embroidery work takes 8 to 10 hours of our artisans' dedicated time per garment. There are 5 different artisans working hand in hand to craft Merezhivo Cropped Blouse for you, each mastering the special type of embroidery, hand pleating, or sawing technique. All processes combined take about 2 full days of work. Our embroidery patterns are made by artists, each motif tells a story, making each garment truly unique.
