Idrija lace, a history written with thread

Permanent exhibition of the Idrija Municipal Museum

Idrija Municipal Museum, Gewerkenegg Castle, Prelovčeva 9

Every day from 9 AM to 6 PM

Idrija is known in Slovenia and in the world as the centre of bobbin lace-making. The oldest known written document about this craft in Slovenia is from 1696 and it mentions laces from Idrija. Just like quicksilver from Idrija used to be sent abroad, so too were Idrija laces – to be sold so as to bring additional earnings to miner’s families. In Slovenia, they were used to decorate church accessories and liturgical clothes. In the 19th century, wealthy bourgeoisie started using the beautiful Idrija laces to decorate their dresses and apartments.

Let’s Fly... – the Reinvigoration of the Balconies of the Retirement Home Idrija 

Retirement Home Idrija, Arkova ulica 4

Idea about the re-invigoration of the balconies in Retirement Home Idrija was spontaneous. The elderly pitched various ideas on Friday nights; ideas which a group of creative lace-makers, who attend the Modern Challenges of Idrija Lace programme at the Idrija Lace School, sketched, drawn and made lace out of them. Motifs they have created will bring us joy for a long time.
