Variety is the spice of life and vintage variety is the good stuff that shakes it all up!

Idrian Lace

This magnificent tablecloth and napkins set is offered through my Etsy shop.   These are additional photos of the Idrian lace and shadow embroidery for better viewing.

Idrian lace gets it's name from the region of Slovenia which is a country between Italy and Austria.   It is a type of bobbin lace with meandering ribbons of clothwork joined with twisted threads.  Most often this type of lace is seen on smaller items.  To find a full banquet cloth and matching napkins is a very special treat!

For more information be sure to see The Guide to Lace and Linens by Elizabeth M Kurella.  Her closeup detail photographs are very educational for lace identification.
