Idrija, town of quicksilver and lace

Mercury and lace seem to bear little relation, but in Idrija they're cornerstones of local tradition.

Mercury mines brought Idrija wealth. They're the reason for Idrija's spot on UNESCO's World Heritage list.

But it's the centuries-old tradition of lace making that's given area a thriving new voice.

More than 400 children and 150 adult students have come to try their hand at crafting intricate bobbin lace in Idrija over the past half-decade.

Some arrive from as far afield as South Africa and the United States.

Today, visitors are as likely to buy lace-embellished garters and jeans as more traditional souvenirs.

"Fashion was, and still is, important for lace making," says Metka Fortuna. With 12 years as a lace-making teacher and now a head of the Idrija Lace School for nine years, Fortuna has watched the development of this intricate craft.
