Abstract: The article presents the research on the Hutsul folk costume in the collection of the Seweryn Udziela Ethnographic Museum in Krakow. The collection of the Hutsul folk costumes stored at the museum has been developed in several stages and is related to the history of two museums: the Museum of Technology and Industry (closed in 1950) and the National Museum in Krakow. The main part of the collection dates from the end of the 19th and the first half of the 20th centuries (until the outbreak of World War II). This collection includes women's and men's garments and a few children's items. Original ornaments, colors and types of garments and accessories show a local variety of the Hutsul clothing. Nevertheless, a number of objects require a more precise attribution, and the collection in general needs further elaboration – in the context of social, cultural, ethnographic and local factors – in order to define and identify the phenomenon of the traditional Hutsul folk costume.
