"This is the type of lace they..." Museums / Architecture / Art / Paintings. Tip by irisbe


This is the type of lace they make in Bruges.
You have different kind of methods of making lace.
The lace industry became popular in Bruges in the 19th century.
At that time the production in Antwerp collapsed because people could get better paid jobs at the expanding harbour in Antwerp.
You need a lot of patience to make a small piece of lace.
Handmade lace is therefore very expensive.
You can imagine that the ones that are sold in the shops at low prices are machine made lace.

Address: There is lot's of Medieval Art and Architecture
