Post subject: Polish textile arts
When I visited Krakow in 1976 (with my parents), there was a display of folk arts set up in the Market Square outside the Cloth Hall. Many women were demonstrating traditional textile arts, and I spent much time photographing them.

Post subject: Rzeszow costume
There is a photo in my mother's house. It was taken somewhere in Holland during one of our concerts. I am dancing there a dance from Przeworsk region (about 40 kilometers east from Rzeszow) and I am wearing a costume from Rzeszow region. As I remember, the pattern on the apron is the same as the one above. I will try to find it. If I have a luck I will show you that costume.
I have finally found it. The quality is not too good because it is a paper photo, not a digital one (it was taken in '96 - before a digital pictures era ). Look at the apron - the embroidery on it is almost the same as you have got. Patterns on man's and woman's shirts are in the same style.
