These images represent intricate traditional Ukrainian embroidery patterns
("vyshyvannia" in Ukrainian), and closely resemble Native American and other
ancient ethnic art designs. The possibilities for unique and beautiful
patterns are virtually unlimited.
The sources for the images contained here are varied: my mother's
embroidered "rushnyky" (literally translated as "towels", but more
accurately described as "ceremonial cloths") and pillows, some are my own
designs, and others are adaptations of the work of talented Ukrainian artisans
such as Ksenia Kolotylo. We welcome contributions from our readers, so please
write to me if you'd like to add your creation to this collection. Credit for the entry
shall be assigned to the contributor.
The pages are organized to present suites of patterns which are available as
side trims, medallions, and bands (bars). We also feature background
wallpaper tiles. Have a peek at sample page 1,
sample page 2 and sample page 3
for ideas on how to use our images. If you
would like an adjustment made to any one of the patterns, please let
me know and I will try to accomodate you. Visit often, because we'll be
adding regularly to this archive of decorative digital art.
