Fragments, tears and lace  

Fragments, tears and lace is an exhibition of lace-like textiles that explores aspects of the construction, meanings and uses of lace. The lace handkerchief was crafted primarily for its aesthetic qualities and its social references. It was largely impractical, but the lace handkerchief developed into a practical, woven textile which also signified the development of manners in a rapidly changing world.
