Let us open an album full of old black-and-white photos and watch 19th century Idrija come alive before our eyes. We first notice images of people – miners and their wives, merchants, teachers, clerks, ladies with hats carrying parasols – who were the lifeblood of this imperial-royal mining town. What connects us with this time we did not live in? The Idrija lace with its beauty, tenderness, timelessness.
