‘Otaman’ Boutique in Kyiv: Traditional Ukrainian Style

Otaman boutique in Kyiv has a wide selection of Cossack’s clothes and traditional Ukrainian wedding wear, fashionable and popular even nowadays. Here you can buy unique handmade clothes and accessories as well as meet artists who made them.

The idea of founding an atelier-boutique of traditional Ukrainian clothes appeared in 2012: owners of Otaman investigated the history of Ukrainian culture and fashion in the museums and private collections with the help of experts. As a result, they succeeded in creating clothes and accessories that highlight the character formed by hundreds of years with the unique cultural identity left by Ukrainian ancestors. Popular "vyshyvanka" (a traditional embroidered shirt) is only a small part of the cultural heritage that reflects Ukrainian authentic style.
Stylish Cossacks in UkraineMany foreigners who visited Zaporizhska Sich, Cossaks residency island, noted that Cossacks “love to dress well”. Recreating such richness and beauty in the modern world is the mission of Otaman boutique-studio.Clothes and accessories from the Otaman boutique are created a specialized studio. Only high-class designers, engineers, tailors and sewers work on the newest fashion items. All things are created in a single item to ensure uniqueness and exclusiveness. The outfits for ladies harmoniously combine classic traditional Ukrainian style and modern trends. Shoes, accessories and authentic handmade souvenirs are also presented in the shop.
