“Inspired by Paraske Plytka-Horytsvit, a Ukrainian Hutsul artist, photographer, writer, storyteller, folk philosopher, folklorist, ethnographer, and dialectologist. Let’s uncover the meanings embedded in the scarf:

When Paraske joined the national liberation movement and became a link to the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), her pseudonym was “Swallow.”

Photographic Film:
Throughout her life, Paraske took over 4000 photographs. She was a talented and meticulous photographer, capturing the daily lives of ordinary people living in the Carpathian Mountains in the second half of the 20th century.

Paper Cutting:
From her childhood, Paraske was known as the “Paper Factory” due to her passion for working with paper. She excelled in the traditional art of paper cutting, decorating her home, book covers, and creating ornate paper-cut covers for books.”
