    Borshchiv embroidery ifeatures a plethora of black thread, which has become a unique calling card of the region.


    As ancient legend tells us, the dominant black color of embroidery is related to specific events in this region's tragic history. Between the 15th to 17th centuries, Borshchiv Krai was a constant target of attacks by Turks and Tatars. The enemies ruthlessly ravaged and plundered villages, taking many prisoners. Following one such attack, where several men were killed, the girls and women in these Transnistrian villages swore that they would remain in mourning, wearing and wedding in nothing but black. Hints of this oath are seen today in the same embroidery that comes out of this region as did 500 years ago.
