Dentelles de Cogne

The tradition of the hand-made lace date back around 1665. Contrary to other French or Belgian lace-traditions, there aren’t any cartoons; patterns are handed down from mother to daughter.

Today in Cogne there are still 130 lace-women, gathered in a cooperative society, and they produce every years about 3000 metres of precious lace, known for its aesthetic, but also functional, excellence.
