They do not speak English here. Small shop with five or six ladies making lace with bobbins. Pictures on the wall show exquisite lace patterns used by designers in clothing.

We stopped here to see these creative people and the very intricate designs made with lace. It takes hundreds of hours to work on these exquisite lace creations.
