Local cultures

Poland is a country extremely rich in ethnography.

Almost every region has different dresses, cuisine, language expressions and customs.
Most of this local folklore can be found during church ceremonies and during Christmas and Easter.

Folklore is also special floral designs that are used to decorate homes, small utility items and clothes.

In many regions women still  embroided tablecloths, napkins, shirts and even ties.Those products enjoy unflagging demand and become a very nice souvenir from Poland.
