The description under this photograph from 1922 reads:

IN THE FAMOUS RAINBOW WOOL OF LOWICZ

“Lowicz is renowned for its coloured wools, and Lowicz girls for their
handsome rainbow costumes. The striped, quasi-crinoline skirt and neat
bodice present a delightful medley of soft rich hues, enhanced by endless
strings of amber or coral beads.”

Lowicz is home to an interesting ethnographic museum and open-air skansen where
Polish art, historical artifacts, and traditional wooden village houses can be seen.
