Meet the Gold lace-maker… Sara Bran

Gold lace represents the harmonious union between the airy delicacy of lace and the precious splendor of gold.

Initiated in the workshops of royal courts, this form of craftsmanship sees the expert hands of lacemakers transform golden threads into pieces of unparalleled elegance. Beyond adorning noble clothing, gold lace also enhances accessories and liturgical elements, creating works where each delicate motif attests to the exceptional talent of the artisans.

Although less common today, this tradition persists through rare pieces that continue to captivate, thus preserving a heritage where beauty meets preciousness, reminiscent of the brilliance of a bygone era.
