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 Sieradzanin figurine shows the details of regional embroidery while maintaining all the substantive elements.
The women’s tail jacket was lined with linen or factory-made fabric, sometimes also with old woolen or aprons. The caftan was long to the waist, and its cut slightly fitted the figure. The caftan was fastened with string loops that were hooked over double-breasted buttons. For decoration, black or navy blue velvet was sewn on caftans (front, edges, sleeves). Every day, the inhabitants of the Sieradz region wore ordinary clogs. On public holidays, women wore black high-heeled shoes. The upper of this type of shoes was high and had lacing along the entire length – the strings for lacing were black or coral. Lace-up boots in the Sieradz region were worn until the interwar period. Women’s neck ornaments, no matter what they were made of, were called beads. Necklaces could be made of real beads or amber, but imitations of these ornaments were also worn. Real beads and amber were part of the property, so they were taken care of very much. Crosses and medals were also worn around the neck. At the beginning of the 20th century, glass bottles became very fashionable in the Sieradz region. They were ornaments made of beads to which colored ribbons were attached so that their ends fell over the shoulders and back.
