Traditional Folk Costume of Ukraine
Traditional Folk Costume of Ukraine: Pokuttya, Carpathian Ukraine, and the Village of Serafyntsi. The ethnographic region of Pokuttya is relatively small, about the size of Manitoulin Island, and lies next to a number of other distinct Ukrainian ethnographic regions. To the north is Podillya, northwest is Opillia, west is the Boyko Area, southwest is the Hutsul Area, and southeast is Bukovyna. Most of the Ukrainian immigrants who settled in Espanola a century ago came from Pokuttya, from the village of Serafyntsi in Horodenka County, just a short walk away from both Bukovyna and Podillya. The people of Pokuttya were known for their lavish use of reds, interspersed by tiny bursts of jewel tones, and their festive outfits were particularly spectacular, vibrant, and joyous, worn on holidays, feast days, Sundays, and for weddings and other celebrations. Cherished over a lifetime, these garments were lovingly and painstakingly made by the very people who wore them.

Participants 12 & under accompanied by an adult please.
