A postcard from Malta










Gozo lace the traditional hand-made lace,which was first introduced to Malta by the knights of St. John.in 16th cent. Maltese lace has its unique characteristics, different from all the other laces around the world. These are primarily the use of the Maltese cross in the patterns and the cream or black silk in which the lace is usually made of.
