The Kalocsa embroidered lace – also called richelieu (after cardinal Richelieu), has a strong and rich tradition in Hungary. Originated in the southern town of Kalocsa, the richelieu lace was introduced to local craftswomen in the early 1900s, who adapted it with fervor and a traditional local folk flair. The Kalocsa embroidered lace remains popular in Hungary today.
With the aim of exposing local traditions and culture, LOKALWEAR has reinterpreted the original lace designs of folk art master designer Vera néni (aunt Vera), who lives and works in Homokmégy near Kalocsa, with a romantic flair to create a new contemporary jewelry line.
