Sheet «Crimean Tatar embroidery - code of the nation. Autonomous Republic of Crimea»

Embroidery is not just a decorative element. This is Ukrainian history, mythology, religion and the ancient art of our ancestors. Scientists believe that embroidery encodes the nation’s genetic code. The embroidered shirts, rushnyks (embroidered towels) and head-cloths represent a variety of techniques and colors from different regions of Ukraine.

The Autonomous Republic of Crimea is represented on the postal issue by Crimean Tatar embroidery (women’s head shawl “marama”, mid-nineteenth century), which is made in the traditional technique of tambour embroidery Qasnaq using metallized (gold) and silk threads on homespun. The ornamentation, color combinations and technological methods correspond to the principles of national decorative art and crafts that have been developed since ancient times.

Sheet «Ukrainian embroidery - the code of the nation. Kharkiv region»

The series of postage stamps “Ukrainian Embroidery – Code of the Nation”, launched in 2018, continues with the issue of a stamp depicting the embroidery of Kharkiv region. The Kharkiv region is represented by a nineteenth-century women’s shirt with a pictorial image of cockerels on the sleeves, a symbol of the sun, light and the awakening of life.
