Lefkara Lace: Before Memories Fade



Lefkara lace is the most characteristic kind of Cypriot embroidery, with its reputation having transcended the narrow geographical confines of our island. Through intense research and filming the documentary portrays the art of Lefkara lace through the testimony and experiences of some of the most remarkable living embroiderers of their kind.

The documentary also portrays, through photographs, reports in the Cypriot press and interviews with some of the last embroidery merchants, an era in which the lace traveled across the length and breadth of the world.
