Nyzynka – Ukrainian tradition



        This technique is needle-weaving stitch called “nyzynka”, which is executed predominantly on the reverse of the fabric and gives a sort of “tweed” effect, what is special for this technique is a geometric ornament and a sharply contrasting palette.

                     This is one of the most archaic of traditional Ukrainian stitches that, in combination with the predetermined areas of white background material that peek through the densely laid threads, emphasizes the clear-cut silhouette of the main patterns.

                     What do You think about it?
