Cotillion is an adornment made of beads, which was widespread in the West part of Ukraine at the beginning of the 20th century. Girls wove them for their suitors and gave them as a sign of sympathy. Later, this tradition grew into the fact that women began to give cotillions to boys who went to a war as a sign of protection and souvenirs about them. Cotillions were hung on the button of the pocket, closer to the heart, so there are many stories that the adornment saved the owners from a bullet received in battle.

We recreate ancient cotillions and want to revive the tradition of wearing and giving cotillions to our military.
