Paradoxically, the origins of the Venetian needle point lace originally came from the hand works skill of the poor fishermens’s wifes who continuosly patched the holes in thei husband’s trousers using only needle and thread as they were far too poor to own fabrics.
With the political and economical decline of Venice, the art of lace making was almost lost for more than two centuries and came back into vogue at the end of the 18 hundreds.
In a very short time, the Venetian lace decorated the trousseaux of the world’s most noble families. Over the years the tradition of fine linen with lace has been preserved up to the present times without sacrificin elegance to the everyday needs of praticalty.
The present production has remained faithful to traditions, excluding any form of mass production in order to offer items made in the same way as in the past.
