Textile techniques have always presented a wide-ranging field for creativity. Whether in applied form as garments or interior furnishings or as free artistic work, textiles have a way of inspiring designers to flights of fancy and the urge to explore the expressive possibilities of the genre. While embroidery develops across an existing support, the lace that emerged out of it during the Italian Renaissance can expand virtually infinitely into space.
