A coif (czepec) was an obligatory headgear for married Lemko women. It has the form of a shallow cap consisting of a horseshoe-shaped bottom folded in the bottom part and a surrounding rim with rounded edges. Lemko women wore the coif over hair trussed on a hazel wood or wire ring called hymla. A coif was worn under floral headscarf (called a tybetka) with a white or green background, covering half of the forehead, which was tied in a knot at the nape of the neck.
The presented coif was hand-sewn before World War I from white cloth with small blue-red flowers. It was stiffened with a canvas lining. At the front, above the forehead, the coif is richly embroidered with a colourful cord, cross stitch technique and a machine lockstitch, which creates a small geometric pattern. The edge of this decorative insert was finished with three rows of indentations knitted with red and pink thread.
A coif comes from the Lemko village of Męcina Wielka.
