The Kurpiowski costume of the Green Primeval Forest includes a very characteristic element – a girls' headpiece called czółko (a “little forehead”). The White Forest's costume attracts attention with its shirts’ red-embroidery, which forms rhythmical strings of circles, fans, triangles and semicircles, a green dress with rich ornaments and silver, beaded gallons, as well as with a black, padded, winter gowns, so called angiery.
