And last but not least, we offer lavish lace and embroidery for your home as well (or hotels, restaurants and events), such as lace tablecloths, lace table runners, linen napkins, linen placemats, cotton cushion covers, embroidered and lace edge detailing pillowcases, and so on. Josephina Lace's handmade lace and fair trade products touch the entire "womanhood" universe!
WHO MAKES THE LACE
Our lace is made by a group of women from the tiny town of Poção, in Pernambuco, northeast of Brazil. Their “art”, which became a passion and then a tradition, has been cultivated and passed on from generation to generation for centuries. Poção is known as the lace capital.
The women behind Josephina Lace are mothers, grandmothers, daughters, granddaughters, sisters, divorcees and single mothers - and they all have "names!" - Maria Bernadete, Maria Aparecida, Maria do Socorro, Ana Nery, Célia Costa, Michele Silva, Airlane Mendes da Silva, Marilene Francisca da Silva, Jacqueline Germino…and many others! They all have one BIG thing in common: they make the most beautiful and delicate Renaissance lace and embroidery for other women - their weddings, their children and their homes!
