Kalocsa Lace Tee Collection
The Kalocsa embroidered lace - richelieu, has a strong and rich tradition in Hungary. Originated in the Southern town of Kalocsa, the richelieu lace was introduced to the local craftswomen in the early 1900s, who adapted it with fervor and a traditional local folk flair.
The Kalocsa embroidered lace remains popular in Hungary today.
With the aim of exposing loal traditions and culture LOKALWEAR in collaboration with Diane Kappa has re-stylized and re-contextualized the original lace designs of folk art master designer Vera néni (Romsics Lászlóné) - who lives and works in Homokmégy/Kalocsa - in to a contemporary tee-shirt line.
