Nyzynka Embroidery

Nyzynka embroidery from the Ukraine is named after its technique of working the basic pattern from the reverse of the cloth. It is closely related to Nyz' embroidery from the southwest of the country; Nyzynka work is especially known from among the Hutsuls along the Ukrainian/Romanian borders.

Nyzynka work differs from Nyz' embroidery in the fact that, while the outlines of the motifs are worked in black using a simple darning stitch (as with Nyz' embroidery), the motifs are subsequently filled in with another colour (traditionally in yellow, orange, green or red).
