Milanese Lace is thought to be the earliest lace ever made, starting in the 17th and 18th centuries and continues to be made today. Originally making beautiful Passemnteri style went on to develop patterns of flowing scrolls and blossoming flowers.
This piece takes inspiration from Milanese and Honiton bobbin lace. Honiton is a lace that my Grandmother would sit and make in Sidmouth, Devon is not far from the town of Honiton, my mother keeps a collection of my grandmothers work. The art of making lace is rumored to have been brought to Honiton, England by Flemish refugees in the mid-to-late 16th century. (wilkipedia)
