The importance of lace

Margareta von Bahr

This exhibit focuses on the significance of lace, from the Middle Ages until today. Few are aware of the major social, cultural and economic importance of lace. Simultaneously, the exhibit honours the thousands of women who worked for a pittance to adorn the upper class. Finally, the exhibit highlights the unique textile art form that was, and still is, represented by lace. (Version Nordia 2020)
