Ukraine possesses a wealth of cultural talent and a rich cultural legacy. Because of the country’s geographical location, Ukrainian culture has been influenced by the cultures of both western Europe and Russia. Woodcarving, carpet making, embroidery, pottery and ceramics are some of best known Ukrainian decorative arts and crafts.
In 1891, two immigrants, Vasyl Eleniak and Ivan Pylypiw came to Canada as the first recorded Ukrainian settlers. Within the years that followed, tens of thousands of Ukrainians arrived in Canada. Approximately 350,000 Ukrainians emigrated to the United States between 1870 and 1914. During those same years, an estimated 45,000 Ukrainians emigrated to Brazil and 10,000 to Argentina. They spread unique and beautiful Ukraina cultures in these countries. Closed to where Mlavi studio is located, there is an annual The Bloor West Village Toronto Ukrainian Festival--the largest Ukrainian festival in North America, celebrates amazing Ukrainian culture for over two decades of history.
Mlavi studio love Ukrainian culture and was inspired by their beautiful ornamental motifs and compositions, as well as their favorite choice of colors from poppy flower to bright blue.
