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 łęczyca’s figurine shows the details of regional embroidery while maintaining all the substantive elements.
This costume has been worn since the beginning of the 19th century by peasants from the lands of Mazovia, located in the east-central Poland. It is one of the best known Polish folk costume, but also one of the most modified. Inhabitants of Łowicz still wear their costumes on processions during the feast of Corpus Christi. Those costumes are also used by very successful polish folk group „Mazowsze“, which perform all over the world. Łowicz male folk dress customarily includes: a white shirt with embroidered collar and cuffs, vest in a dark colour – „lejbik“ and characteristic striped, orange pants. The whole costume is completed with a felt hat decorated with sequins and beads, a woollen belt and knee-high leather boots. This handmade glass boy brings memories about the traditional costume and the embroidery from the Mazovia region. It belongs to the Bombkarnia author’s collection.
