    The needle masters came from Abruzzo. Famous tailors like Tosti, Caraceni and Fonticoli were all born here.

    Here, between Pescara and L’Aquila, there is a silent and continuous thread that unites the houses, the stories and the life of the people.

    It is a purely female knitting, an art that ends in filigree work: the lace.

    Anyone visiting this area from Abruzzo can watch hands as they quickly and continuously work the thread and create lace that then go all over the world.


    TomboloThe tombolo (bobbin lace) has very old origins and is still practiced in Abruzzo. It is said that this artisan form spread in this region because women did not work in the country during the winter months and could dedicate themselves to the bobbin lace.

    Nowadays, bobbin lace is increasingly sought after by those who appreciate the special nature of the processing. The difficulty and the working hours make them a coveted and valued product. Owning such an embroidery becomes a real treasure that is passed on to the daughters from generation to generation.
