The city has always been famous for the handicraft of its lacemakers, traces of which are still to be found in 20-odd shops where lace is made and sold today. Rococo
, which opened in 1833, offers the most extensive collection of old and contemporary pieces, selling the finest handiwork in romantic antique bobbin, needlepoint, ribbon lace and modern custom-made lace. Fun for children, and interested adults, are the demonstrations in its showroom – so you can see how these delicate works of art are created. Never again will you look at lace the same way.
