The Polish national wardrobe is filled to the brim with embroidered dresses in all possible colours as well as Gorals, hard-soled leather moccasins called ‘kierpce’ and ornaments from red beaded necklaces to fancy peacock feathers from Kraków. Hanging next to stripy woollen and felt attire, we find the finest silk, cashmere and colourfully threaded ornamental lace.
