Description

Wonderful and rare long antique Ukrainian wedding Rushnyk (towel)
Very long!
This towel manufactured in the period of 1918-1922 year in Poltava region, Ukraine.

What is unique of that rushnyk (towel)?
And it is unique in that: it been made by hands a one Poltava master Petrenko - all, from embroidery to lace! First master sowed flax with his hands, then harvested flax, dried flax and yarn spun from it. From the first part of the thread she wove cloth, the other part was painting his own thread for embroidery, weaving lace of the third part.

These towels are used and are still used today in Ukrainian wedding ceremonies.
This custom dates back to the times of the ancient pre-Christian era slyavyan. So far, Ukraine newlyweds followed and met the likes of embroidered towels. The traditions of different regions of Ukraine are slightly different: in some regions of the young couple is held under such towels, other newlyweds are asked to take the towel. The embroidery on these embroidered towels to protect newlyweds from damage and the forces of evil.
According to the Orthodox Christian tradition, the couple stood on the rushnyk (towel) in the church, and the priest asked them about the seriousness of their intentions.

This towel is one of those on which newlyweds getting married and kneel. In the center is not specifically embroidery and lace - for newlyweds did not get down on the embroidered symbols.
Embroidered with red rose flowers, which signify love in Ukrainian folk mythology.
Towel is decorated with lace motifs of vine leaves (mean well-being, prosperity and strength of the family and the kind of relationships) and cruciform flowers that are more stylized ancient solar signs.

Rushnik (towel) can also be a wonderful rustic home decor.
