Like it or not, in the spring you always want to add at least a drop of colorful notes to your wardrobe, even if you are used to dress with restraint and don’t tolerate excesses in clothes. But buds blossoming around and sunny mood usually dictate a change of style. Therefore, today we recommend adding bright stitches and multi-colored threads to the image and telling you with the help of what things it is easy to do.


Continuing the traditions of Ukrainian embroidery, VARENYKY FASHION designers attach great importance to their patterns. As for our ancestors, for them it’s not just “flowers and plants”, but sacred symbols of health, well-being and harmony. For example, the fern that adorns the FIRE FLOWER blouse is an amulet that helps unleash strength of mind. It is made in the Richelieu technique, created in Renaissance Italy, where the craftsmen knew a lot about handmade art. In general, you need to wear and watch how this "talisman" changes life for the better.
