From color restraint 20—30`s in women`s and men`s shirts, aprons conceded to the colorfulness. Traditional in these areas black, red and blue were added blue, purple and yellow colors. The inherent embroidery of the XIXth century preserved a certain rarity of the ornaments, as well as the tradition of sewing around the joint of two parts with decorative sutures (hemstitch, stebnivka-stitch shtapivka-stitch, bavnytsia-seam). They were contributed to the unification of individual compositional elements into a single whole. Towels, bedspreads and tablecloths of the early XXth century are usually decorated with cross-stitchpatterns.
