International Lace Festival Camarinas, Spain 🇪🇸

The Mostra de Encaixe de Camariñas is definitely an event that attracts all lovers of bobbin laces. The Festival has been held in this town for over 31 years and from year to year it expands its program becoming an event on a global scale. Aside from lace makers and crafts, this event holds one of Spain’s most important fashion catwalks, presenting the latest collections from the country’s best designers.

Together with my mum, we had such a great honor to be a part of one of the biggest lace festivals in Spain and we proudly represented our county and the town of Bobowa ❤️

This year we decided to add some ivy garland.

The final result of our stand.

From 14.03 to 17.03 April we had the opportunity to present our works and techniques to all guests attending the International Lace Festival. My mum and I are creating a rather unique collaboration, as two generations - two different views on the subject of lace - are coming together here.

Interesting facts: in Camarinas there is an excellent museum of bobbin lace created in November 1996. The Museum is a unique testimony of the cultural survival of popular arts and crafts and represents an almost unaltered tradition. It aims to recover, preserve and disseminate, Camariñas’ historical memory through a permanent exhibition.

If you want to see more photos from the festival and find out about other exhibitors and attractions I encourage you to visit the official event website.
