My name is Agnieszka Cicha, and I go to High School PP Prezentek. I live
near Cracow and we've got rich culture.
I'd like to describe the Cracovian costume, which is one of the most beautiful
national folk costumes. In the East the men are wearing the brown or dark
blue peasant's russet overcoat with a big embroidered collar. They wear
red four cornered caps on they heads, and belts. They wear dark trousers.
In the Western part of Cracovian district the men wear the white peasant's
russet overcoat with the upright collar narrow waist. Cuffs, collar waist
lined with red cloth and very decorated. The peasant's russet overcoat
is done up wish hook and eye. The shirt is made of the white cloth. Is
long up to the knees, with a turn down collar. It has got a red ribbon
on the neck. The festive shirt is embroidered on the collar and on the
cuffs. The breeches worn in the summer time are lighter and made of percal,
and striped. The breeches worn in the winter time are made of thicker and
dark material. They wear them on the top of knee boots. On the shirt, they
wear outer garment with sleeves or without. They put on black the hobnailed
shoes. They dress long sheepskin and fur caps. They are wrapped around
with double, wide leather belts with rich ornaments. They are beautifully
embroidered. They are some brass-buttons and other things folk attive.
