A few kinds of cropped jackets were used around Kraków, though the most popular and liked ones were those worn by Kraków women in the Young Poland time. Cropped jackets emerged as a popular piece of women's attire in the 1960s and 1970s, though their history dates back to as far as the 19th century.more

A few kinds of cropped jackets were used around Kraków, though the most popular and liked ones were those worn by Kraków women in the Young Poland time. Cropped jackets emerged as a popular piece of women's attire in the 1960s and 1970s, though their history dates back to as far as the 19th century. The cropped jacket is principally a corset with sleeves sewn to it and was mostly worn together with a corset, matched for colour and ornaments. Cropped jackets used to be worn on colder days, usually in the winter and in the autumn; it was then put on over a corset. Their ornamentation resembled ornaments typical of corsets. They were mostly sewn from cloth, wadded for insulation or lined with fustian lining.
This cropped jacket came to the Ethnographic Museum in Kraków as a gift from Kazimierz Tetmajer exactly a year after the museum was established, i.e. in 1911. We do not need to present this personality. A Małopolska artist, Tetmajer was the founder of the Academy of Fine Arts and Creative Industry for Women, a co-creator of the Polish Applied Arts Society, a member of the Polish People's Party and a co-founder of the PSL-Piast faction. He was also an MP in the Vienna Parliament and, after Poland's regained independence, in the Polish Sejm and, quite importantly for the museum, also a member of the Founding Committee of the Ethnographic Museum in Kraków Society. Most importantly, though, he was fascinated with the Polish countryside to the point that he settled permanently in Bronowice and married a daughter of a rich peasant, Anna née Mikołajczyk, becoming an inspiration behind the character of the Host in Stanisław Wyspiański's Wesele [Wedding]. The collection of the museum includes more gifts from Tetmajer, mostly from Bronowice and the nearby villages.
