The embroidery is dedicated to the national instrument - the bandura

The idea of creating a vyshyvanka was proposed by the singer and bandura player Maryna Krut: "Why did they first try to destroy the kobza, and then the bandura? Because Kobzar's art had an incredible power and enlightening spirit, which was disadvantageous to the then government." - said Marina.

We took the main element of vyshyvanka from Veresaevskaya kobza, a characteristic carving in the form of a flower, called a vowel. Also on the shirt is the text from the Ukrainian song "I'd Take a Bandura"

Antonina Lytvyn - a public figure, folklorist and poet told the story of this song and mentioned that the original text is a story about a Cossack, from whom the Tatars stole a girl: "And here I was left a round orphan."
Trying to free her, he lost his sight in captivity.

The text about a difficult fate was distorted during the Soviet era, but the original was preserved.
A blind Cossack returns home and in order to live, he learns to play the bandura:
"I would take the bandura and play what I knew, because of that girl I became a bandura player."
