The publication "Traditional clothing and embroidery of Transcarpathia" was presented in Uzhgorod (PHOTOS)
Reference and souvenir publication was realized as part of the project "ProMuseum: Development of the resource base and modernization of the museum industry." Launched last year, the project is a joint initiative of the NGO "Ukrainian Center for Museums," the International Renaissance Foundation and the ICF "Ukraine 3000".
The idea of the project was to create a contemporary museum souvenir product combining content and original implementation.
The source base for the cards was the museum collection of clothing and embroidery, which is over 3000 exhibits, out of which the author of the project selected the most typical ones. In total, the collection includes 16 cards depicting costumes of all administrative districts of the region and ethnic groups of Ukrainians in Transcarpathia, as well as traditional costumes of Hungarians and Romanians in the region.
In addition to reference and aesthetic value, the publication has also practical value. On the back of each card, there are patterns of particular embroidery so that anyone could recreate authentic ornaments by themselves.
The initial size of circulation is five hundred copies. Some of them are intended for cultural exchange with other museums in Ukraine, and the rest will be available for sale. It's one of the goals of the project - to help museums to earn money for their next projects.
The next presentation of the collection of cards "Traditional clothing and embroidery of Transcarpathia" will take place March 27-28 in Kyiv, during the ceremonial presentation of works of all museums-winners.
