Traditional lace-making technique using thread and bobbins. The thread is woven into a fabric using the bobbins to intertwine, braid, and twist the threads into beautiful patterns. A background pattern is laid, the thread is pinned at the starting points, and the bobbins are flipped and twisted to create the lace - pins hold the threads in place while the lace is being made.
