Traditional Ukrainian Folk Headdresses: The Borshchiv and Zalishchyky Districts
July 1 – November 26, 2017
Headdresses are an important part of Ukrainian folk costumes. Their development, establishment, and use were based on practical, functional, customary needs and requirements, esthetic tastes, and hallowed beliefs in their magical power to safeguard. The headdress in its utilitarian function offered protection from various hazards and dangers, but in its socially traditional aspects, it was a marker of individual identification within a specific cultural and social structure. The headdresses in this exhibition, most of them on loan from the collection of Vasyl Nayda, are from the Borshchiv and Zalishchyky districts of western Podillia, an area where traditional headdresses – particularly those belonging to matrons – survived until the 1930s more often than in any other part of Ukraine.
