GOOD PRACTICES OF THE TRENČÍN REGION
MYJAVA TULLE BOBBIN LACE
The uniqueness of Myjava tulle bobbin lace lies in its subtle nature and airiness, which is achieved by knitting from a fine white yarn on tulle net using a high number of wooden bobbins. This lace is charachetristic for the Myjava Region and its origins come from the municipality of Krajné.
Its production in this particular region was documented already in 1880s. The art of producing Myjava Tulle Bobbin Lace was transferred from generation to generation till present – its tradition is therefore still living and the lace plays an important role even today in this region as a part of local Myjava identity. Thanks to its uniqueness, links with its region and living traditions Myjava tulle bobbin lace was inscribed on the Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Slovakia in 2016.
