Malta has a long and rich history of lacemaking.

For some learning a little more about the history of the laces enhances the understanding and gives deeper appreciation of the beauty of antique handmade laces.

So for those who like to delve a little deeper, I've added the following information. I never knew as much about Malta until I read it myself.

From Wikipedia a little bit more about the lace making in Malta

Lace making

Traditional isbobbin laceof thefilet-guipurevariety. It is formed on a lace pillow stuffed with straw, and frequently features the eight-pointedMaltese cross, but not necessarily. Genoese-style leafwork is an essential component of the traditional designs. Nowadays, Malta lace is usually worked on ivory-colouredlinen, although historically it was also worked on black or white silk. It is typically used to make tablecloths, placemats and serviettes, and is periodically featured in couture, and in traditional Maltese costume.

Lace making has been prevalent in Malta since the 16th century, and was probably introduced to the Islands at roughly the same time as inGenoa. Lace was included with other articles in a bando or proclamation enacted byGrand MasterRamon Perellos y Roccafulin 1697, aimed at repressing the wearing of gold, silver, jewellery, gold cloth, silks and other materials of value.[50]

There was a resurgence of lace-making in Malta around 1833, which has been attributed to a certain Lady Hamilton-Chichester.[51]Queen Victoriais said to be particularly fond of wearing Malta lace. In 1839, Thomas McGill noted inA Handbook, or Guide, for Strangers visiting Malta, that:

"the females of the island make also excellent lace; the lace mitts and gloves wrought by the Malta girls are bought by all ladies coming to the island; orders from England are often sent for them on account of their beauty and cheapness."

Malta lace was featured inThe Great Exhibitionheld in London in 1881. Lacemaking is currently taught in Government trade schools for girls, and in special classes organized by the Society of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. Lacemaking is essentially a cottage industry throughout Malta and Gozo.
