Lace Museum in Calais

This museum in Calais is one of two lace museums in France. It is a former 19th century lace factory dedicated to the glory of Calais lace–making heritage. It was once Calais’s most sought after product worn by royalty and used as a symbol of wealth and statue.

The amazing collection includes:
15,000 sample books
10,000 lace pieces
10,000 fashion magazines
1000s of items of tooling and industrial equipment
9 looms – five still working and used for demonstrations

When I visited there was a special exhibition to Hubert D. Givenchy.
