A headscarf is an organic element of Ukrainian folk costume, which was worn in the villages and in the cities, under any weather - different styles and fabric depending on casual wear or festive attire.
Our objective was to show that headscarf is not a relict or anachronism, but a beautiful accessory that is appropriate nowadays. Headscarves in Gunia Project collection are ornamented with naive elements and
symbols such as birds, angels and flowers, taken from archive exhibits of Ukrainian ritual cloths «rushnyk» in Ivan Honchar Museum of folk culture. This collection of silk headscarves is inspired by Ukrainian peculiar sacral art pieces - icons, painted on glass, typical for Western parts of the country.
We suggest either to wear them traditionally or take a framed variant and hang on a wall as a painting 100% silk and hand-made sewing.
