Since its opening in 1984, Germany’s only lace museum presents alternating items from a unique textile industry and displays the historical change in their production and design.
The broad range of products from Plauen’s lace and embroidery industry has always had a following and made Plauen’s name known around the world.
Craftsmanship and artistic design ability secured this success.
“Plauener Spitze” (lace from Plauen) is a term that has an irresistible appeal for all those with a pronounced sense for exclusive fashion, household textiles and elegant accessories.
