This wondrous lace was handmade in the town of Sovetsk (the old name of the town is Kukarka), which stands on the banks of the river Vyatka in Russia. This was the center of lace-making at the end of the 19th and start of 20th centuries, and the local products won prizes at competitions in Paris, Saint-Petersburg and Atlanta. We decided to include English motifs in the lace: stone flowers on the Victorian houses of Hampstead.
