This costume has been worn since the beginning of the 19th century by peasants from the foothills of Sądecczyzna, located in the south of Poland. People, who live on this land, call themselves “Lachowie”. Because of Tatra Mountains neighbourhood, some parts of their costume were inspired by a traditional highlander's fashion. After the Second World War, Lachów Sądecki costume has became a festive garment and today is still used on the folk song and dance festivals. Lachów Sądecki female folk dress customarily includes: a linen blouse, a velvet corset and a woollen, beaded embroidered jacket – “katana”.
