Ukrainian traditional culture was formed over thousands of years. Its complex includes not only Slavic traditions but also elements of the cultures of tribes and peoples who previously lived on the territory of Ukraine.
100 tablets will give a technical advantage over the enemy in communication, drone control, and navigation.
How we created Paw Box?
To do this, we traveled about 1,000 kilometers across Ukraine, talked to dozens of artists, and residents of different regions, and visited many fairs.
Paw box will allow you to touch Ukrainian cultural traditions, for which we are fighting together!
This project became a real challenge for us! We learned a lot of exciting details about Ukrainian culture and history and the origin of the objects.
We combined all these items and put them in boxes that we named Paw Box. You can find different known and non-known Ukrainian items, toys for kids, musical instruments, and items included in Unesco’s endangered heritage list.
You even will have the possibility to taste known to all: Ukrainian Borshch!
Let’s take a look at what is inside of the Paw Box 😀
The pipe served for a Cossack not only as a smoking instrument but was a source of pride and even a symbol of Cossack’s honor.
One of the attributes that are primarily associated with the Cossacks is smoking pipes.
Ukrainian Zaporizhzhya Cossacks are considered the cradle, “the soul of a Cossack.” Therefore, she was kept as a kind of talisman.
The origin of Petrykiv painting is associated with the Cossacks. Which originated in the village of Petrykivka, in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. Petrykiv painting is not only folk art, but also modern painting, which is developing and acquiring new features.
Wall paintings in the village of Petrykivka were noted for their special artistic qualities. The drawings on the walls of the houses were not durable. Before the big holidays, the walls of the house were whitewashed and new floral ornaments were applied.
A Bulava is a kind of club/weapon in the form of a thick stick with a heavy end. Traditionally it has been used as a symbol of power in Ukrainian history. Hetman and cossack leaders all had one. The king has a crown, the Ukrainian Hetman has a mace.
Borscht is the most famous Ukrainian national dish and a symbol of our culinary culture. It is included in the intangible heritage of humanity – UNESCO. You won’t find borsch that tastes the same, it tastes different in every hostess, although the ingredients are the same. I recommend adding sour cream to the finished dish and eating it with black bread and garlic
This is a miniature version of the Trembita is the longest musical instrument in the world. It was widespread in the Western part of Ukraine, particularly in the Carpathians, and used mainly by hutsuls. Shepherds used the trembita to communicate with each other.
Svyshchyk – the whistle is one of the oldest Ukrainian musical instruments. They were found as early as the 10th century, in the guise of wooden grasshoppers and ducks made of mammoth tusks, which were later transformed into the toy in your hands. This is a children’s clay whistle for children’s entertainment. To reveal its sound, you need to collect water (in your mouth) and fill it to the brim through the tail. Then blow lightly and it will whistle like a bird
The homemade embroidered towel is an attribute of folk customs and rites, for example, during a wedding, both hands are tied with it for a couple, or on the last journey. To embroider towels is an ancient Ukrainian folk custom, usually made by housewives.
The sopilka is one of the most ancient folk instruments, widespread all over the Ukraine. This wind instrument that looks like the fife and belonged to the lute family most commonly was used by shepherds and peasants. The sopilka is usually made of wood, has a length up to 40 cm and 6 – 8 holes for fingers. Modern sopilka has 10 finger holes and is often performed by musicians and folk ensembles.
Dyrkach – a Ukrainian folk musical instrument, belongs to the group of idiophones (self-sounding). Parents once used it to amuse their children.
Ever wondered what the dog’s name, Dzyga, means? Dzyga (Ukr. “Дзиґа“) is a Ukrainian word for a spinning top. We chose this name for the dog because she loved to chase her tail all the time when she was a puppy, looking exactly like the spinning top in action. Now is your turn, just pick up this toy and give it a spin!
Various women’s jewelry, bracelets. Made of wood or clay by local craftsmen.
Herbal tea from the Ukrainian Carpathians. Assembled by hand.
Chevrons of the Armed Forces – decorative and informative patches on the uniforms of military personnel. Previously, they did not differ in variety and were of a standard model. However, with the beginning of the ATO-Russian-Ukrainian war in 2014, new volunteer battalions, military organizations and units began to appear, which received their armbands.
At the beginning of the full-scale war in Ukraine, postage stamps became symbols of small victories! The sinking of the ship Moscow or the liberation of Kherson.
!Paw Box can include different postal stamps!
In the past we have sent a couple of Paw Boxes.
Wow! I'm completely blown away by the "thank you" package from @dzygaspaw. I had never in my life thought I'd receive such a carefully thought out intro to Ukranian culture - I'm learning a lot! What you see is just a fraction of the contents too. Cool to be part of this! #happy pic.twitter.com/yuo4yPtQN0— TB (@TB47134218) December 13, 2022

Just some of the beautiful things I will display once I am resettled. I wondered if my Great Grandmother and great aunts wore similar vyshyvanka before leaving Ukraine in 1907. I loved everything and you all reminded me we are family! Much love to you! And thank you! 💙💛 pic.twitter.com/gmik4n2gPj— Carol M 🇺🇦 🌻 (@karo1961) February 22, 2023
