In search of a past moment, this installation is a detour to capture time.
The Museum invites you to explore the sensual history of this prestigious textile. A luxury object, still used today in lingerie and haute couture, lace also reveals itself to be an art in its own right.
Recognised for its quality, the refinement of its patterns and the fineness of its threads, over the centuries, Brussels Lace has acquired an international reputation. This highly skilled industry beguiled the grandest European courts: from Maria Theresa of Austria to Louis XIV and Princess Josephine Charlotte of Belgium.
