Polish folk costume, Poland


witam przyjaciele!

I received this postcard via postcrossing! Beautiful card! Thank you Beata!

Repercussions of typical peasant culture are the distinguished characteristics of the traditional dress of Poland. It is fabulously enriched with magnificent craftsmanship, phenomenal design, appropriate coloring and symbolic aesthetics. Modern Polish people stand far from their traditional costume in today’s usual life but they have also marvelously preserved their clothing heritage which they often showcase in the cultural events and traditional festivals. There is an enormous range in the traditional and folk costumes of Poland that vary from region to region.

Did you know?

When foreign movies are dubbed for the polish TV, one man reads all the parts, even those of women and children. Viewers hear the original soundtrack faintly in the background.

I send love!
