In stock


Origin: Ukraine | Podilia region | Ternopil area | Borshchiv
Era: Early 20th century (circa 1910-1930)
Condition: fair; several small areas of moth damage; color transfer between stripes; recommended for display only
Measurements: 25″ wide x 29″ long
Additional Notes: Traditional striped wool and cotton apron from the area of Borshchiv of the Podilia region. Borshchiv costumes are some of the most famous of all Ukraine due to their incredible embroidered blouses. This type of apron can be worn either with the regional black wrap skirt or the later pleated velvet skirt. This apron is older than the others we have had available from Borshchiv, but is in slightly rougher condition so it would be best suited for display.
