(PRESS RELEASE) In collaboration with Ukrainian artist, Anka Lavriv, Western Sensibility has launched two pillows with 100% of proceeds benefiting Ukrainian aid relief efforts.

Known for her intricate linework illustrations and tattoos, Anka Lavriv designed two pillows – Lev and Lybid – that draw inspiration from distinctly-Ukrainian patterns and themes of the region. An ode to the prolific Ukrainian artist, Mariya Prymachenko (many of whose great works have been lost in the ongoing war), Lev and Lybid celebrate Ukraine’s strength and resilience.

The Lev and Lybid pillows are printed on Western Sensibility’s Two-Tone Square Weave textile as an homage to the ornate cross-stitch and embroidery traditions of Ukraine. Western Sensibility’s Two-Tone Square Weave features the brand’s signature life-friendly technology with a stain and soil release finish.

It’s Western Sensibility’s goal to raise relief funds for the ongoing war in Ukraine, as well as give voice to the dynamic culture of Ukrainian art and craft. Proceeds will be donated to Kharkiv Help and the Ivan Honchar Museum, which is now focused on a concerted effort to collect and safeguard historical and cultural Ukrainian artworks.

Many museums in Ukraine have been destroyed and artworks lost due to the ongoing war. The Ivan Honchar Museum staff are working with international organizations in their effort to maintain what is still left and safeguard Ukrainian’s rich cultural history.
