This hand fan of Bruges flowers was designed on November 2017 and is my first design using this technique.
It has been crafted using 60/2 “quitamiedos” silk from O Percheiro dos Croques, a really resistant silk and perfect for this kind of work.
It takes around 60 hours to craft the hand fan.
The flowers have been finished in knots, while the plait have been finished using magic threads to hide the cut of the thread.
The Bruges Flower technique is relatively simple, accesible to all the lacers and very alluring. There are several kinds of flowers but this hand fan shows a little sample.
