The presented apron was worn with festive attire and put on over a colourful skirt by both ladies and married women in the Podgórze region. It is sewn by hand from factory fabric, white linen, and embroidered by hand.
At the bottom of the apron there is rich embroidery made of white cotton thread, flat stitch, satin and chain stitch. The holes are embroidered with thickened rims. The edges are double-scalloped. The strap is tied with strings.
Women usually embroidered this kind of decorative items alone, but there were also rural embroiderers who were employed professionally. The described apron was embroidered by the mother of the last owner – Katarzyna Gruca – before World War I and was made in Gródek near Grybów.

The elements of clothes shown in the Open Air Ethnographic Museum of the Pogórze Region in Szymbark come from the western part of the region, near Gorlice. For ages the region has been famous for manufacturing flax linen and cloth for trading purposes. They were produced by special weavers. Initially, these materials were used to make clothes for both holidays and common days. In the late 19th century, female outfits began to change as easily accessible factory-made materials started to be implemented. At the turn of the 19th and early 20th centuries, this type of clothing ceased to be common because of the changes in the living conditions of countryside inhabitants related to the development of the oil industry and labour migration.
The displayed elements of folk outfits from the Gorlice region (a wedding scarf and a folk apron) were sewn from factory-made materials and manually embroidered by women from the region.
