Did you know that the largest lace in the World was made in a small village Koniaków, located in the southern part of Poland? It is the highest elevated village in Silesian Beskid. Every corner of this village offers magnificent views of the Beskid panorama. Five lace manufacturers made the largest napkin, using over 8,000 pieces and 50 km of thread.
Istebna – a village known all over the world for its beautiful, handmade lace. The tradition from Koniaków dates back to the early 20th century. The uniqueness of Koniaków Laces lies in not using templates. Thanks to this, each design is unique and is distinguished by its unique charm, and its form and a multitude of elements depend entirely on the imagination of the lace maker. Tradition is passed down from generation to generation and is still cultivated. In 2017, it was inscribed on the National List of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
We recommend this trip for groups interesting in culture trips, craft workshops, unique experiences.
