Kim's Color Crazy Challenge ~ Idrija lace

Today is the last day for blue. Because when we’re locked in, I have a lot of free time. Yesterday I decided to tidy up the drawers a little. I found a lot of things that I had forgotten a little about. Among other things, I found this beautiful Idrija lace. Idrija lace is a type of hand-knitted lace with a centuries-old tradition, which is preserved and developed in the area of Idrija and its surroundings even today. White linen or cotton thread is most commonly used to make it. Due to the loss of work in the mine there, Idrija women, from the middle of the 17th century onwards, made a huge effort to make lace.

  1. What a beautiful piece this is. You say it is hand knitted… but it seems more like bobbin lace with the contour of the bird. Still the fact remains I will definitely look up Idrija lace as I had never heard of it compared to point lace or Bruges lace or Venetian gros point or Irish point lace etc….
