» Pag Lace is a miracle of Croatian folk art on the island of Pag
By Darko Žubrinić | Published 07/10/2014 | Education , Culture And Arts | Unrated
  A systematic teaching of preparing the Pag lace on the island of Pag near the city of Zadar started in 1906 (cancelled in 1948 and renewed in 1994). But it is known that already in the 15th century the Pag lace has been prepared within the benedictine convent of St Margarita on the island of Pag. Hundreds of hours of patient work, without any mistake, are needed to produce a high quality lace. In the town of Pag there is a Gallery of Pag Lace (Galerija paške čipke), which we warmly recommend you to see it. On the photo dating from 1916, is a little Pag lacemaker.
