The story of our Netherlands’ Vyshyvanka is about long-lasting relations between the Netherlands and Ukraine. It absorbs our commonalities for the past decades of admiration, gratitude, hope and aspiration. Creation of this style of embroidery began with the cooperation between the Dutch designer Emily Hermans and the company Edelvika under the auspices of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ukraine.
The creative tandem of artists resulted in a unique design of a traditional yet modern embroidered blouse. It is a straight-cut blouse with raglan sleeves that gently envelop the shoulders and elegantly descend creating a lush silhouette. The ornaments on the placket and sleeves make the product stylish and up-to-date.
Embroidery patterns and colors of the Dutch island of Marken, the symbolism of the chosen images and the typical Ukrainian motives and embroidery techniques were harmoniously combined in a coherent picture, complementing each other. The Dutch ambassador in Ukraine, impressed by the beauty of vyshyvanka, said: «the embroidery symbolizes our appreciation for the beautiful Ukrainian tradition to which we wanted to add a flavor of Dutch innovation».
