A lot of factors shaped the development of the Wilamowicean folk architecture. Among them was the growth of the weaving industry, the traditional occupations of the local residents and the fact that they were able to buy their way out of feudal services in 1808.
Wilamowicean maidens used to dress differently than the married women. The girls in the photographs are wearing Sunday dresses, traditionally worn to church. The clothes consist of striped skirts, white Turkish aprons, trimmed jackets, red headscarf tied below the chin “cypułn” style and 5 row necklaces with a Wilamowicean silver cross.
