OBERIG of NATION
Vyshyvanka is an unbreakable force of the rich history of the whole human race, encoded in a combination of ornaments and colors


If we undertake to create anything, then we do it unsurpassed

Vyshyvanka (Ukrainian: вишива́нка [wɪʃɪˈwɑnkɐ]) is a Ukrainian embroidered shirt, which is an element of the national costume of Ukrainians. The people of Ukraine have long believed that the patterns embroidered on the vyshyvanka will be able to take the trouble away from the owner and bring good luck. The embroidered shirt is called the "oberig" of the nation


An "oberig" in the Ukrainian language is a thing that protects the owner from adversity and brings good luck.

Vyshyvanka is not just clothes

In our own Art Workshop for 30 years we collect and restore ancient ornaments and embroidery techniques that have survived since the time of our great-grandmothers.

Did our ancestors make sense of the pattern? Definitely.
Svargs were embroidered for family happiness, Trypillia signs for protection and eternal life, diamonds - for wealth and fertility.
An incredible dance of embroidery and pattern techniques

Therefore, the vyshyvanka is first of all a family amulet. A thing that must be passed down from generation to generation.
