Bobbin-lace making started in the 16th century in Italy. Back then the lace was made with gold and silver-wrapped threads or colored silks and linen threads to create extravagant designs.

We used linen thread and conductive silver plated thread, like they did in the 16th century but additionally to visual pleasure we developed this technique for much more functional e-textiles use, e.g. for electrical circuits.
