This is my Ukraine clothing.
This is my Ukraine clothing.

  My artifact is a traditional Ukranian clothing.              I got this from both my parents as a gift at the age of seven.The materials used make this is cotton with colerful knitings which comesin many different colors this  takes hours to make.             The history behind it is that thi clothing was developed during the centuries,each region of each country made its own colors,desings and looks.This is important to my family because this is used for holidays and traditions.               Something you can learn about my culture is that it’s religous and                                fun.              Some questions I have are            (1)who made the first Vyshyvanky?            (2)who mostly wore it in Ukraine ?              In conclusion this is both important for me and my family. It is important to me and my culture and I am thankful to be able to share it with you.
