Laces of Bruges
Numerous items on display were made with such laces. The fabrication process of these laces is described here in detail.
Laces were made of great width, the designs has distinct border on a lacy background. It looks as if it is full of holes. This lace work is called the bobbin lace, a specialty of Bruges. The art handed down from centuries. It was taught in schools then, girls qualified in this art while taking religious education. I wish there are more schools today imparting this kind of art and such art is preserved for ever.
