Did You Know?

The word lace derives from the Latin laqueus, meaning noose.


The dark yellow of the unbleached linen ground allows for the pattern, worked in bleached linen in the burato technique, to prominently stand out. A thicker white thread outlines the design of stags in the top register, the vegetal motifs throughout, and the griffin or crowned eagle on the right.
