Burano Lace

Lace-makers use specific techniques to work thread into a light, ornate and precious fabric. 

Lace is not cut from a piece of fabric; it is made by carefully and painstakingly weaving the threads by hand. 

Lace production is an ancient craft and, according to some sources, it has been practiced in Venice since the 15th century.

It is an irregular weaving technique that requires an extremely skilled hand with decades of experience. Until the mid-16th century all lace was produced exclusively by hand. 

Over the centuries lace-makers on the tiny island of Burano refined the so called punto in aria or punto Venezia, developing a unique style which came to be known as punto Burano. This tradition of exquisite lace-making is still alive on this island in the Venice lagoon
