When defining the word lace, we can say that it is a construction composed of interwoven thread. However, a considerably more pertinent name appears to be the poetic term for one of the lace making techniques – ‘punto in aria’ – sewing in the air, ‘Lace’ is an invention of a goddess and a task for a queen’ – that is how lace making was described by Federico de Vinciolo, the XVI century lace maker connected with Henry IInd’s court. And although few people are aware about it, it was Queen Bona who popularized the difficult art of lace making in Poland. Helene Modrzejewska – a well known Polish actress made a contribution to the lace renaissance in Poland. She was a mainspring of creating the National Lace Making School in Zakopane in 1883. Soon – a similar school was founded in Bobowa in 1890. Those schools do not exist any more. However, the traditions of the bobbin lace making are still cultivated in Bobowa – and it is regarded as one of the most important lace making centres in Poland. Another essential centre is Koniakow.
