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.
