Today i am going to write about the costume of the region of Kapsai, somewhat of a sister region to Zanavykia. Kapsai is south of Zanavykia, between Lithuania Minor and Dzukija, bordering on Poland to the south. This corner of Poland historically had a sizeable Lithuanian community, and actually i am not familiar with any Polish costume native to this corner of Poland. Here is a map showing the Kapsai region. This map shows Dzukia extending to the south of Kapsai. Different maps do not agree as to the exact extent of the various regions, Dzukia in particular.
Again, as in Zanavykia, the apron takes center stage. Peruse the images in the posting. Horizontal arrangement is distinctive for this region. Sometimes the upper part is left unornamented or made from a cheaper material, because the bodice covers it.
The sash is wide, with very ornamental motifs, it is tied either under or over the bodice. Tulip motifs are often prominant, and the supplemental weft fringes are well in evidence.
