Over the centuries, the lace had been constantly changing and gaining new forms, which have become a recognizable characteristic of the Idrija Lace. When we think of lace, the first association is handmade lace, although from the 18th century onward, we have also got to know the machine-made lace and today even three-dimensional printed silver lace. This proves that, despite its centuries-old history, lace, with its beauty and elegance, inspires generations of people, keeping up with the times.
One of the characteristics of the Idrija lace is the Idrija tape - a continuous tape that joins various fine details. The same way the tape joins various elements, the exhibition "Silver Thread through the Eyes of Marita Wrong" connects designers and artists from all over the world who want to show the richness of the lace.
Through various international projects, we will present lace from different aspects at the exhibition. Each project in its own way demonstrates the importance of cultural heritage and the preservation of tradition.
