Learn all about Iris Galea Lowell, Lace in Sliema, - Malta

Lacemaking is one of the oldest and prestigious Maltese traditions originating from the times of the Knights of Malta on the island. Traditionally referred to ‘bizzilla’ in Maltese, this creative art allows you to create various unique lace creations which aren’t only appreciated by the locals, but also a lot by tourists. It’s easy to recognise Maltese lace from the symbolic Maltese cross included in the pattern.

By braiding and twisting threads of cream Spanish silk, Iris Galea Lowell is a local lacemaker who is constantly seeking to create the most impressive artistry with lace. She specialises in all types of traditional Maltese bobbin lacemaking. This method is carried out on a tall lace pillow or ‘trajbu’ in Maltese by crossing over single threads wound over the bobbins or as the locals refer to them, ‘combini’. In order to keep in place the weaved pattern, pins are placed along the way. Read More
