Burano lace umbrellas

Fun lace umbrellas made in Burano for lilttle girls.

 

Legend has it that a young Venetian seafarer brought his beloved a seaweed from the far, distant seas. As she wanted to preserve the memento for ever, she painstakingly copied the delicate outline and patterns using her needle and thread.
