In other words, it is a skimmer, a craftsman who produces belts and haberdashery, i.e. textiles used to decorate uniforms, liturgical vestments and upholstered furniture. The first piece of information about Krakow’s pasamonki comes from 1365, when they agreed with saddlers from Grodzka Street that the latter ones made by themselves would knock out with tin, and that pasamon with brass, and that they would not make Russian stripes or sewn bits. The features of the striped pattern were found in many Polish cities. In Krakow, this guild survived until the mid-nineteenth century. City regulations stipulated that every craftsman, if he wanted to practice his profession in Krakow, had to be a citizen of the city, and thus accept the city law, and after receiving the title of master – get married. There were usually four guildmasters in the guild of pasamon: the elder, the senior and two pug-brothers. A very important duty was to make sure that the guild kept the tower in the city walls in good order. When admitted among the townspeople, he submitted a certain amount of gunpowder or rifles to the town hall to defend the tower.
