A passion that soothes: a veteran of the Russian-Ukrainian war from the Lviv region creates embroidered shirts

A passion that soothes: a veteran of the Russian-Ukrainian war from the Lviv region creates embroidered shirts
The creation of embroidered shirts is considered exclusively a woman's business. However, there are examples when men took up the needle and colored threads. The story of Roman Didera, a veteran of the Russian-Ukrainian war from the Lviv region, confirms this.

Roman was mobilized in 2015 in the 95th separate airmobile brigade, where most of the fighters are defenders of the Donetsk airport. Due to his constant stay in the trenches on wet ground, he developed a disease that occurs in older people - the death of cells in the hip joints. Then came prosthetics and rehabilitation. But the Ukrainian defender did not even think that he would embroider.

So far, the veteran has already embroidered 10 shirts — 7 men's and 3 women's. He made men's for himself, and women's for his wife. And he plans to continue his work until he and his wife have the same number of embroidered shirts.

However, the first step that started Roman's journey was the creation of an image of Jesus Christ from beads. He spent almost 4 months on this work. In parallel, his wife created the same portrait, but used threads for it. Of course, it was not without difficulties, because it was the first experience: I dug up, threw away, recycled. But he finished it in 4 months.

After the experience with the image of Christ, Roman had the idea to create the first embroidered shirt. His wife thought that everything would end with just words. However, the promise was kept.

"Embroidered with a cross. And then he began to study other embroidery techniques. And now I no longer have crosses, but each shirt is embroidered using a completely different technique. Different techniques can be combined even in one shirt. And a trellis, and a vestibule, and a cornice, and a molding, and an artistic molding. Now he took on the borscht shirt. I make it with quilted crosses," said the man.

The Ukrainian defender adds that it is embroidery that brings him peace. There are days when he does not tear himself away from embroidery for 5 hours in a row.
