These are traditional Ukrainian embroidered Easter (Pascha) Basket covers  that are used to cover your Easter Basket. There is a tradition in the Ukrainian Churches that a basket be filled with a little of each of the foods given up during Lent. This also includes the traditional Easter Bread, salt, butter, horseradish, kobasa  and Pysanky. It is then covered by this traditional hand made cloth and  taken to church on the Pascha to be blessed by the priest. Then, after the Pascha liturgy  the first food eaten to break the fast is taken from this basket and shared by the entire family. Prices, place of origin and availability are as marked. These are not screen prints or machine made,  but hand embroidered and all are handmade in Ukraine. These are all hand cross stitched and many have extensive cut and draw work. Ask before you buy. Other companies are selling less expensive machine embroidered  cloths , but ATU's goal is  to  provide an incentive to keep the art form alive for the next generation. Read our Payment Policy
