Bobbin Lace Making

Bobbin-lace making started in the 16th century in Italy. Back then the lace was made with gold and silver-wrapped threads or colored silks and linen threads to create rich and extravagant designs. Inspired by the historical lace making, this sample explores the possibilities of using this old technique today to create contemporary designs. Additionally to pure visual pleasure this sample is functional for e-textiles use, e.g. for electrical circuits. The design can be developed and used as conductor or as a sensor.
