Bobbin lace is a textile lace technique consisting of weaving threads that are initially wound into bobbins, called bobbins, to handle them better. As the work progresses, the fabric is held by pins nailed to a pad, which is called “mundillo”. The location of the pins is usually determined by a pattern of holes in the pad.
The bobbin lace can be made with fine or thick threads and traditionally, it was made with linen, silk, wool and later with cotton. Nowadays it is also made with a great variety of synthetic fibers, with wires or other filaments.
Thus, the Association of Rural Women of Fregenal de la Sierra presents an exhibition in which they show a representative part of the works that over the years have been carried out as a result of their activity.
