One of the most famous collections of Bombkarnia is the one referring to regional embroidery. We want to present the heritage of Polish folk art in a new way, i.e. on glass baubles.
The hand-made figurine of the Bytomian woman shows the details of regional embroidery with all the substantive elements. The girly headdress was a galloon, an ornate wide wreath made of artificial flowers and trinkets. Glass beads strung on wires hung freely over the forehead. Ribbons tied at the back fell all the way to the shoulders. The shirts called kabotki were made of thin cotton canvases. The ladies wore either dresses or skirts, both wide, richly crinkled and so long that they covered shoes or slippers worn with a festive outfit. Wierzcheń, i.e. a short cloth corset, fitted at the waist, was adorned with a wide ribbon arranged in folds around the neckline. A petticoat or skirt was tied with a decorative apron. The outfit was complemented by jewelry, mostly beads. Patterned ribbons were an important addition to the outfit.
