Permanent exhibition

Lace room

Through previously unseen pieces, recently acquired or specially retrieved from storage, you will plunge into the extraordinary history of Brussels lace. A fabric that has since disappeared

 

Brussels lace has gained international renown over the centuries. Its finesse, quality and beauty made it the preferred textile of the elites from the 17th century. It found its way to the greatest royal courts of Europe, adorning the apparel of both men and women.

 

Contemporary lace is also honoured. A new piece by Carine Gilson, the godmother of the Chambre des Dentelles, is revealed with finesse and transparency.
