Lace, symbol of femininity and elegance
Created at the 13th century in the East, imported to Venice at the Renaissance and to the Court of France at the 17th century, lace has been continuing to inspire the fashion designers for ever. Needle or bobin lace are the main techniques used in manufacturing workshops, heritage of a unique French savoir-faire.
In booking Corinne’s original guided tours in Normandy or in Brittany, you will meet artisans who still make lace by hand. Unique!
For the moment, enjoy a part of France lifestyle through this lace umbrella, created by Jean-Paul Gauthier and made in a Burgundy family-run manufacture which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year.
