Recommendation by Lemi
An Impiraressa’s patience is rivaled only by a lacemaker’s, and Il Merletto brings the finest Burano lace to the shores of Venice. Learn about the world-class delicate fabric made just a short boat-ride away from the city, and purchase a few coveted pieces as well. Il Merletto maintains direct ties to La Scuola dei Merletti di Burano, a school that has been teaching the craft since 1872. Herein lies one of the last places to find true Burano lace made-by-hand. Brides-to-be and purveyors of finery trust Il Merletto for the real thing. In truth, you should, too!
