“Slovenia’s bobbin lace making, a traditional lace-making technique using special wooden sticks – bobbins, has made it to the UNESCO list of intangible cultural heritage.

The decision was taken on Thursday by the UNESCO Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, as it is meeting in Port Luis, Mauritius, the Slovenian Culture Ministry said in a release.

Slovenia formally nominated this special technique of making delicate lace in March 2017. The tradition is especially strong in the north-west, around Idrija, Cerkno and Škofja Loka.” (Slovenia Times)
