A tradition that goes back to16th century, bobbin lace is an ex-libries from Vila do Conde, the most important production centre in Portugal.
This item portraits a genuine and delicate portuguese bobbin lace, in all its lightness and seduction.
Vila do Conde is a quiet city that gained in importance and increased prosperity as a ship-building city at the time of the Maritime Discoveries. The sea has always had a major influence in the life of the local inhabitants, inspiring the motifs used in the famous bobbin lace that has been produced here at least since the seventeenth century. Later, the techniques and knowledge of this remarkable art spread along the rest of the northern coast of Portugal as far as Galicia itself, and some of its beautiful products can be appreciated at the local Lace Museum. The important role played by handicraft in the life of this city is not limited to its lace-work, however, for each year in July/August, Vila do Conde hosts the National Handicraft Fair, one of the most important events of this kind in Portugal.
