11kant

11 days and counting… To celebrate our almost-15th-birthday we introduce you to an outstanding achievement of Belgian bobbin lace makers. The lace coverlet (King Baudouin Foundation) was probably commissioned for a European royal family around 1750. It would have been used on special occasions, like weddings or births, as in Europe it was the custom for a mother to receive visitors in her bedroom shortly after giving birth. The most luxurious textiles one could buy would only enhance the festive nature of this occasion.
