This is one of my favourite and earliest collections. I have always been fascinated by the beauty of the lace designs of this old Maltese tradition, which dates back to the era of the Knights of Malta. I was also lucky enough to sit beside my grandmother and watch her nimble fingers work with the bobbins, and strategically place pins to create the design. She had worked Bizzilla in her youth, even making her own designs, and to my delight she took this up again in her later years.
Nothing of this collection is accidental and some of the pieces have been imprinted with pieces of my grandma’s own Bizzilla.
