Multistage processed flax remains the main raw material. For the manufacture of products local weavers use various tools and devices that have specific regional names, – myalka (grinder), terlytsya (slipper), vereteno (spindle), hrebin’ (comb), dnyshche (bottom), pryadka (spinning wheel), motovylo (reel), etc. Their products are characterized by expressive decorativeness, a clear correspondence between material, shape, pattern and color. Geometric and floral (often flower) ornaments are smoothly combined. Bright colors are prevailing, nonetheless, they do not dominate, but are harmoniously intertwined with the overall coloring pattern. Centuries-old experience passed down from generation to generation, encouraged a deep understanding of the artistic beauty that manifested in such elements of ornamental compositions as “bubny” (drums), “kub” (cube), “zirky” (stars), “chrestyky” (crosses), “zubtsi” (spikes).

Hisella Kupash is the main carrier of the intangible cultural heritage element, she works prolifically and creatively today, creating original fabric paintings that fit perfectly into the modern interior. Furthermore, she gladly teaches children the basics of weaving on the basis of the Velyka Dobron folk ethnographic museum.

Cultural Heritage

elyka Dobron shuttle-sorting weaving is one of the oldest types of folk art of Transcarpathia, which has been preserved for over a hundred years and developed by the weavers of the villages of Velyka and Mala Dobron, Demechi, Solovka, Esen and other settlements of Uzhhorod district. There was a loom in almost every house, so many women and girls traditionally knew how to weave. On the long winter evenings, free from farming hassle, the mistresses sat down at the loom and began working. They usually weaved carpets, tablecloths, various bedspreads to have something to adorn the house magnificently with on Easter and all the other holidays, and the girls prepared a dowry. Age-old traditions were passed down in the family, and the loom was inherited by the daughter from the mother. Historically, the vast majority of the population of Velyka Dobron are Hungarians. Therefore, characteristic of Velyka Dobron shuttle-sorting weaving is a combination of two cultures – Ukrainian and Hungarian.
