Lace sewing has a nearly 100-year-old tradition in this town. The Halas lace became a worthy competitor of the Brussels lace. It won the chief prize of several world exhibitions. During the last last 100 years many famous people received Halas lace as a gift of the Hungarian state. In 1996 Pope John Paul II, in 2000 the Japanese empress were also given this gift.

The lace is sewn by extra thin twisted linen cotton. The samples are fixed on a fabric streched on frames.

On the line of the sketch a contour thread is led to the end without any stop. This thread will hold together the lace.

Aftir this the motives are sewn in a way that it almost looks to be a woven material. The parts left untouched are then sewn by one of the 60 different kinds of sewing pattern.

Finally the prepared lace is removed from the sketch.

The preparation of the Halas lace is very similar to the technology of the Venetian lace, but this latter one is made by thicker threads. Its preraparation talkes plenty of time and meticulous needlework, this is why the value of the Halas lace is similar to that of gold.The logo of the trade mark is three fish crossing one another.

The laces are prepared according to the agelong traditions and sketches, but we also accept orders. We made the arms of several Hungarian and foreign towns, and the logos of various companies. Visitors can be led through the slaw and demanding prcedure of lace sewing.

Welcome at our place!

"Halas Lace", from the town of Kiskunhalas, first appeared in 1902 and has since become an important part of Hungarian folk art. One of the founders of cottage industry in Hungary was Árpád Dékáni (1861-1931). The Kiskunhalas Lace workshop is one of the very fem built at the turn of the century and still functioning today, despite frequently difficult conditions. The first designer of Halas Laces was Árpád Dékáni. However the needles behind this unique technology belonged not to Dékáni brat to Kiskunhalas-born Mária Markovits (1875-1954). continue
