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 Kurpianka shows the details of regional embroidery with all the substantive elements. The Kurpie folk costume comes from the area of Mazovia. The women’s outfit consists of a homespun shirt, knee-length, decorated with embroidery on the collar and cuffs, sometimes pleated. A homespun skirt with colorful longitudinal stripes is put on it, with a colorful bodice sewn to it, the so-called A “dress” with a “chest” or “smock” – a gray “coat” made of linen with colored vertical stripes. A “wrestling” apron is tied at the waist, reaching the knees or equal to the skirt.
Height – approx. 14 cm
– bauble: glass
– box: decorative cardboard printed in the colors of Bombkarnia
Each of the elements was produced in Poland.
