Lace in American Culture

July 26, 2022

Lace came to America more than 400 years ago. Lightweight, easy to pack, it was an expression of civilized European lifestyle, and brought with it the optimism for a similar life in the New World. Over time, lace defied hardship, celebrated socio-economic advancement, indulged the wealthy, often in unexpected format. During this talk, Irish lace expert Beverly Wolov will discuss how lace became so deeply imbedded in American material culture.
