Moryrok – a skirt made of black moire fabric with vertical magenta stripes. Tucked, made of 7 widths of fabric, sewn into lining. The bottom edge trimmed with black fabric ending in a short fringe. The skirt is decorated with 3 rows of narrow black velvet ribbon. Such skirts were usually worn as part of the festive costume, as one of the first underlayers, under the 'kiecka' skirt and the apron. While sitting down, so as not to wrinkle their pleated 'kiecka' skirts, women lifted up the bottom of the outer clothing, revealing the skirt underneath.
