Help out those in Ukraine by purchasing a tartan designed by Lidiya Nikolaevna Khlystun Clear, a native born Ukranian. You can find more information below. You can choose from our premium or standard traditional kilts.
From the designer of this tartan: "Capturing the true blue of Ukrainian People, this design integrates the black for the rich fertile soil of the Ukrainian farm lands, and the gold for the fields of wheat, the deep blue of the sky above. These three items combine to make Ukraine a land of glorious bounty.
About the Designers: Lidiya Nikolaevna Khlystun Clear was born, raised, and lived most of her life in Ukraine; and still has family and many friends there. Her grandfather was a survivor of the Auschwitz Nazi Concentration Camp; so, as for many Ukrainian people, their fight for survival is close and personal. Lidiya is an RN, and considers herself a medical missionary wherever God places her. Her time spent with Roma people in Ukraine helped establish her love for mixed media tapestries. Lidiya lives in the US now with her husband Kelly, and their five children. Kelly is part Scotsman and lives in kilts.
Lidiya hopes for this design to provide hope and inspiration for her country, as well as serve as a reminder to the world of the strength of the Ukrainian people. We WILL have our freedom!! "
The designer of this tartan has requested the donations be made to the YWAM base in Ukraine. The proceeds of the sale will be donated directly there. (we are still trying to see exactly how much, but around 30% of the total purchase price). This amount may change in the coming weeks. We will keep you updated.

Purchase OptionsHere you can purchase your Under Ukrainian Skies tartan fabric by the yard. There are three options to choose from:<
- "This is not being used as a great kilt, just need fabric by the yard." - This is just plain fabric by the yard. Use this option if you plan on using the fabric for smaller or larger projects
- "This fabric will be used as a great kilt, please fringe both ends" - Use this option if you plan on using the fabric as a great kilt (typically you would be specifically looking for this) and want the raw, cut ends fringed. While the longer sides have a nice, finished tuck in selvedge, the ends where the fabric is cut from the larger bolt is raw. We recommend selecting this option for great kilts
- "This fabric will be used as a great kilt, but I do not want the ends fringed (raw edges left alone)". We do not typically recommend this option unless you have other plans for the raw edges of the kilt. If you choose this option, it will come just as if you were buying fabric by the yard.
The length of your fabric will depend on how many yards you order. This listing is for 1 yard. You can add more yardage by adjusting the quantity that is above the 'Add to cart' button. Example: Quantity 4 equals 4 yards.
