Bobbin lace and needle lace

Two main styles of hand-made lacemaking have evolved, side by side through the ages. Needle lace florished in the early Venician republic, while bobbin lace predominated in other parts of Italy and Europe at the same time.


The process of creating bobbin lace makes a distictive sound.



Needle lace fabric is made Punto in Aria (stitches in mid air)
with nothing more than needle and thread.
