Bobbin lace is a lace textile made by braiding and twisting lengths of thread, which are wound on bobbins to manage them. As the work progresses, the weaving is held in place with pins set in a lace pillow, the placement of the pins usually determined by a pattern or pricking pinned on the pillow. Bobbin lace is also known as pillow lace, because it was worked on a pillow, and bone lace, because early bobbins were made of bone. It is one of the two major categories of handmade laces, the other being needlelace, derived from earlier cutwork and reticella.
The first pure pattern book for clapper technology appeared about 1557 in Venice: Le Pompe.
Early bobbin lace in gold and silver thread, c. 1570.
A will of 1493 by the Milanese Sforza family mentions lace created with twelve bobbins.
Bobbin lace evolved from passementerie or braid-making in 16th-century Italy. Genoa was famous for its braids, hence it is not surprising to find bobbin lace developed in the city. It traveled along with the Spanish troops through Europe. But also in the Erzgebirge, the first bobbin lace are proven in the 16th century. Coarse passements of gold and silver-wrapped threads or colored silks gradually became finer, and later bleached linen yarn was used to make both braids and edgings.
In the 17th century, the textile centers of Flanders and Normandy eclipsed Italy as the premiere sources for fine bobbin lace, but until the coming of mechanization hand-lacemaking continued to be practiced throughout Europe, suffering only in those periods of simplicity when lace itself fell out of fashion... Now doilies and handmade bobbin lace fabrics are back in style. Anyone who is fortunate enough to have a grandmother who made such treasures can bring them back to pristine beauty to add nostalgic charm to your home.
