Idrija has always been considered an important centre of lacemaking knowledge, from where the skill of designing and making lace artwork spread to the world. Today, new approaches and innovative products are being developed in Idrija with traditional knowledge. They incorporate lace into modern fashion trends and arts and crafts. The “Idrijska čipka ” (i.e. Idrija Lace) geographical indication guarantees the quality of bobbin lace from the Idrija area. Moreover, the art of Idrija bobbin lacemaking was recognised for its universal value by the joint entry of “Lacemaking in Slovenia” on the UNESCO Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
