Additional Notes: The aprons of the Kyjov region of Moravia are some of the most spectacular works of textile folk art seen in traditional folk dress. Made of indigo-dyed cloth, the apron is meticulously hand embroidered and decorated with handmade multi-color lace along the bottom edge, characteristic of the region. The lace and embroidery are in excellent condition. The original waist ties were replaced at some point with beautiful floral ribbons making the piece entirely wearable. Apart from minor wear, the apron remains in excellent condition and is an excellent example of the local style.
