The presented corset comes from the village of Rozdziele. Corsets (lajbyky) were worn by Lemko women  – brides and young married women. They were worn over blouses.
This corset was sewn from a patterned  factory fabric. There are colourful (pink, blue, green) flowers on a cherry red background. The corset is decorated with a dense, coloured lockstitch along the edges of the fastening, on a strip at the waist and on the kaletki (strips of cloth lining the edge). Cutouts at the neck, hands and the edges of the fastening are trimmed with a dark pink narrow wool ribbon. Lemko corsets were most often buttoned, and less often laced. The lajbyk on display features 6 decorative pink plastic buttons. Its lower edge is decorated with numerous kaletki – so-called kłapcie. It is fully lined with grey canvas.

Lemko costume

Folk costumes in the area of Lemko culture survived far longer than in the neighbouring Carpathian Foothills. This was because of the slower rhythm of cultural changes in the mountainous areas inhabited by the Lemkos.

The Lemko delegation arrived at the ceremony on May 3, Gorlice, 1933. From the collection of the National Digital Archives.

Folk costumes in the area of Lemko culture survived far longer than in the neighbouring Carpathian Foothills. This was because of the slower rhythm of cultural changes in the mountainous areas inhabited by the Lemkos. Even at the end of the interwar period, Lemkos wearing traditional clothes could be seen at fairs. Women’s outfits — that were worn every day and during holidays until the World War II — have been particularly well-preserved.
