Costume« Back
Male and female festive costumes from the second half of the 19th. century are presented in a glass showcase. They were worn by the well-to-do citizens and peasants on Sundays and holidays, at weddings and other festivities. A woman would dress up in a short small chemise or 'little sleeve' and richly plaited petticoat, and over it also a skirt with corset. Around the waist she would have an apron tied, and over it a girdle would hang ('sklepanec'), which was made from tin, brass or silver. She would be shod in socks and high shoes or 'èizmi'. She would have a hood on her head, and they would also wear richly adorned white kerchiefs or 'peèa'. A man would dress in a white shirt and long drawers, and over that a waistcoat and suede trousers. He would be shod in socks and high boots. Around the neck he would have a silk neckcloth and a hat slapped on his head. There are also jewels and other little accessories exhibited: colourful silk kerchiefs, 'peèe', 'sklepanci', ear-rings, pipes, clocks and a tobacco pouch. The votive pictures show how Loka people would dress up in the 17th. and 18th. centuries.
