LabLace, the creative laboratory of the Caudry Lace Museum, is launching its first international competition.
Sponsored by the Maison On Aura Tout Vu, the aim of the competition is to stimulate creativity and curiosity around Leavers lace. Made according to a unique savoir-faire, this lace is exceptionally fine and transparent. By exploring the potential of this material, candidates are invited to create new avenues of avant-garde innovation, particularly in terms of finishing.
