Orchid midi dress falls to below the knee. Raglan sleeves feature large scale satin stitch embroidery in floral motifs. The dress has a wrap-around silhouette. It has two side pockets and decorative stitches adorning the neckline. We used a combination of different threads, decorative lurex thread adds sparkling effect giving depth to the embroidery.
We have used around 3.5 meters of high-quality linen and 3.5 thousand meters of embroidery thread to craft this garment. At first, the parts of the dress are getting embroidered and then assembled together by our craftsmen in Kiev. Our embroidery patterns are made by local artists, each motif tells a story and conveys a worldly sentiment, making each garment truly unique.
In Ukrainian culture, Vyshyvanka has always had a significant spiritual meaning and each dress was passed on from mother to daughter. Traditionally believe it is a mascot.
