Idrija has always been considered an important cradle of lacemaking knowledge, from where the skill of designing and making lace works of art spread to the wider world. In addition to traditional knowledge, new approaches and innovative products are being developed in Idrija today, which place lace in modern trends in fashion and arts and crafts. The geographical indication "Idrijska čipka" guarantees the quality of Idrija lace from a specific area. The art of Idrija lace has been recognized for its universal value with the joint entry of the "Lace making in Slovenia" unit on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
