Pocket Squares for Ukraine
Cad & The Dandy are proud to be partnering with Ukrainian bespoke atelier Indposhiv, in this charitable initiative in support of victims of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, via a series of unique designed pocket squares.
In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Indposhiv has created a War in Ukraine series of silk pocket squares. Featuring original and vibrant drawings from children affected by the conflict, as well as one illustration in muted colours with a final farewell theme, by the Odessa based artist Tina Tikhonenko.
All donations from the sales go to support Ukraine’s Armed Forces and humanitarian charities for Ukrainians affected by the conflict via the charitable foundation Come Back Alive .
Kateryna Vozianova, the founder of Indposhiv, established her brand and atelier in 2009 at the same time Cad & The Dandy set up shop in London. Her brand has grown from strength to strength, establishing her business as a leader in luxury and bespoke clothing in Ukraine.
Seeing a great synergy and similarity with our story, we are immensely proud of our partnership with Indoshiv and we will be stocking the pocket squares in all of our stores, alongside the original prints, all available for sale.
Individual pocket squares cost $80, 100% of which goes to Charity.

MORE ABOUT INDPOSHIV
Based in Kyiv, Ukrainian entrepreneur Kateryna Vozianova is the founder of two bespoke clothing brands Indposhiv and Heroism. Ukraine had very few mens ateliers before Kateryna entered the market in 2009, but none had focused solely on the culture and craft of bespoke, which became Kateryna’s goal.
Indposhiv started out tailoring suits for Kateryna’s husband and friends. Applying her many years of marketing expertise, gained from her earlier career at global brand Gillette, Indposhiv’s clientele steadily grew.
Attracting a loyal following of high profile clients, all paid tribute to the quality and service provided by their tailoring workshop where they employ 70 tailors in the heart of Kyiv. Today, some of Indposhiv’s most prominent clients include Ukraine’s President, Mr Volodymyr Zelenskiy, Ukraine’s Prime Minister, Denys Shmygal, and Hollywood star, Jean-Claude Van Damme.
With the outbreak of Covid-19, in 2020, the challenge of maintaining production resulted in further expansion into the domestic market. Thus the bespoke brand Heroism was founded to provide outstanding women’s tailoring services in Ukraine, to match the men’s services available at Indposhiv. This launch resulted in 2 years of the most rapid growth in the group’s history.
In the 13 years since launching Indposhiv, Kateryna has become a well-known business woman in Ukraine, with a strong personal profile. She regularly shares her expertise at high profile business events, across inspirational YouTube channels and on a variety of podcasts. She is married with 2 young children and still lives in the centre of Kyiv with her two young children and her husband, an investment banker and military reservist awaiting call-up.
