The origins of Irish lace...

The tradition of Irish needlework and the history of Ireland both place a significant emphasis on the creation of Irish lace. Hunger and terrible poverty in Ireland during the early to middle of the 1800s gave birth to a delicate art that became famous for its simplicity of use and refinement. This skill is known as Irish lace. The Irish people were put through an especially difficult period during the Great Potato Famine of the 1840s. The Ursuline nuns who had received extensive training in the art of Venetian lace were the first to see the potential that such delicate abilities gave to women and the families they supported. When things were difficult, it was necessary for women to contribute to the financial maintenance of their families. Since the majority of women of this era were already skilled in needlework, learning how to make lace was a natural progression for them. The Ursuline nuns were responsible for teaching a large number of Irish girls and women how to crochet the intricate pattern that is now known as "Irish Lace." During this historical period, the more prosperous Irish families who were able to afford the expensive lace gained the reputation of being called "lace curtain Irish" because of their wealth.
