It is still held up by hand made: richly decorated folk’s dresses, jewelery contained corals and ambers, the flowers bouquet made with blotting paper and wool, paper cut-outs and probably the only one in all over the world - “spiders”. All of them make Lowicz famous thanks their riches and vitality.

Paper cut-outs

Unknown kind of art in other parts of the world includes colourful paper cuts flowers or scenes taken from a daily life work in field, play, elements of wedding clothes and ceremony. It’s actually genuinely spontaneous creation of country peoples spiritual life.
You can hand it up or stick on the wall or put it anywhere you wish.

Paper cuts are divided into three groups:
- round - called “Gwiozdy” because of their shape of star,
- rectangular - called “Kodry” - usually they present scenes of life,
- vertical - called “Tasiemki” because of their shape of laces.
Elements of traditional art aren’t used any more in everyday life but they are still hand made.
