Crazy Challenge Challenges 2019 ~ Idrija lace

I do not know if this is the right color for the challenge of the Crazy Challenge Challenges 2019, but it’s a bit like the indigo color. I received this wonderful gift from my friend. I do not know if you have heard of the Idrija lace. Idrija lace is a type of bobbin lace that has been produced for centuries in Idrija and is an important part of Slovene cultural heritage. When and how they started on the Idrija bobbin, it is not known, it is assumed that the knowledge of this home craft was brought from the German or Czech lands more than three hundred years ago. Initially, the lace was intended for the decoration of churches and liturgical clothing and the furnishing of homes and clothing pieces of a wealthy peasant man. Knowledge of bobbin was transferred from the elderly to the younger, the mothers taught their daughters. Due to the growing demand for quality lace on the market, schools began to be established. In Idrija, a school was established in 1876, and since then it has been operating continuously. Today, the bobbin is a popular activity for many retirees. Idrija lace today presents a challenge to recognized fashion designers, artists, and other creators.

  1. I am impressed with the craftsmanship of whoever made this artwork. So beautiful! I don’t know about the Idrija lace. I watched a YouTube video to see how it is being made and I think it is a very complicated process but interesting. Thank you for sharing.
