Reshetylivka is located in Poltava, in the centre of Ukraine, and has long been a centre of traditional hand made embroidery. As with other embroidery forms from central and eastern Ukraine, the colours of the local embroidery are subtle, with black-on-white, blue-on-white and grey-on-white colour schemes being particularly popular. Pulled thread work is also being created. An important motif is that of the Tree of Life.
