Etnodim Manifesto

New symbols of embroidery

Our ancestors endowed the embroidered symbols on embroidered shirts with an important meaning for them. But are these symbols still relevant today? Or our embroidered shirts about the harvest and about livestock?

A limited series of atypical Etnodim embroidered shirts was created specially for the Embroidered shirt Day.

Along with traditional embroidery, “new symbols” have appeared on products.

We present you the Etnodim capsule collection for Embroidered shirt Day.
Ornaments are no longer mysterious.
Everyone will see what your embroidered shirt is about.

The “Slovo” House was built especially for writers, and the architect designed it in the shape of the letter "C" to emphasize the symbolism.

The legendary figures of our culture became happy inhabitants. But they were all trapped.

Previously, our ancestors embroidered swallows as a symbol of good news and communication with everyone who is close to us and interesting. And now, social networks have become such a symbol.

Sometimes they seem to create distance between people. But in fact they make it possible to see each other's life, even if people are separated by distance, time, events.

Short stories about different paths are combined in one space. Spacious self-expression in the archive of impressions.

Embroidered shirt “Litera”

The main characters of the Ukrainian alphabet. The decoration of our language, and now our dresses, because they have turned into a modern ornament.

For example, in the kuleshivka in place of "ї" they wrote "и". This can be seen in the works of Panas Myrnyi, Lesya Ukrainka and others. The Emsky decree did not contribute to the casting of the printed letter "ї" .

Today we could write исти, наивно, ижак. But, there is a beautiful letter, "їй-Богу!"

Embroidered shirt “Nezalezhni”

August 24, 1991 is the path that the Ukrainian people have traveled, this is the day when the history that people created happened. Proclamation of the Act of Independence of our state. New consciousness of people.

Independence Day is our national identity.

The biggest holiday on the most patriotic embroidered shirt.

Symbol of Ukrainian cuisine.

The symbol of Ukrainian cuisine.

Did your grandmother teach you how to make vareniki too? In childhood, when your parents sent you to the village for the summer. And there, and racing on bicycles, and the hissing of geese, which we were so afraid of, swimming in the river near the house. But the main thing is vareniki. Those who decorated the table then, and decorate the family table now. The taste does not change.

It is interesting how a piece of our childhood memories includes the main symbol of the national cuisine.

Varenyky are known and loved in many parts of the world. People's culture differs as well as tastes. Descriptions of dishes, and methods of cooking, each language has its own special words, often such words have no analogues in other languages. Varenyky making is a ritual accompanied by conversation, laughter, gossip, and sometimes singing. It's about the family circle. About pictures in photo albums, which show not only those at the table, but also at the table.

It's native. And delicious. Now, even on an embroidered shirt.

Embroidered shirt “Mozaika”

Ukrainian monumental mosaic of the 20th century is one of the ways of expression and voices of Ukrainian artists of that time.

An art form through which architects and artists interact with space and other people. Creating powerful visuals, each conveyed their own unique message.

The mosaic has become a Ukrainian symbol, which today is being restored and saved by volunteers on a voluntary basis. A huge layer of culture, which is kept in the mind of connoisseurs.

The blazon is one of the three state symbols of Ukraine, along with the flag and anthem, which was approved as a state symbol on February 19, 1992.

Our designer has combined two codes against the background of an embroidered dress: mosaic as a symbol of art and blazon as a symbol of statehood. And together it is about the strength of the spirit of people who want to talk with the world and keep the words of their native language.
Whatever language it is: visual, folklore-song, or even the language of style. The main thing is that he is Ukrainian.

Embroidered shirt “Kashtan”

The Kyiv chestnut is a symbol of the city. A living decoration from flowering trees.

They say that it was an imperial whim, and the line between whether it was a historical fact or an interesting fiction has long been erased.

The popularity of this symbol was entrenched in the early nineties thanks to the metro!
From 1992 to 1994, metal tokens depicting a chestnut leaf were used in the metro. Then such tokens continued to be produced from plastic.
Have you gifted such tokens to friends from other cities? Or maybe they gave you these?

Kyiv chestnut is a declaration of love to your native city. Or the city that has become native to us.

Once upon a time, unmarried girls wore white shirts. Now free girls have tinder, the most famous dating app, in gadgets.

Remember your first tinder date? And the last one? Or perfect?

Tinder is a modern symbol of freedom and search. A small light for broad meanings.

For girls who have not found their couple yet. Those with an open heart.
