El Hilo Invisible: Mujeres Que Cosen. Colección De Ropa Victòria Antó
(The Invisible Thread: Women Who Sew. Victòria Antó Clothing Collection)
The invisible thread: women who sew, organized by the Museu de Lleida: diocesan and regional, shows 90 pieces of clothing belonging to the clothing collection of Victòria Antó. The aim of the exhibition is, in addition to showing some of the most representative pieces of the collection, to raise awareness of the importance of the work of women who sewed during the period between the end of the nineteenth century to the middle of the century.
The exhibition, curated by Rosa M. Martín i Ros, a textile and clothing historian, is divided into three main areas: women’s clothing (underwear and sleepwear), children’s clothing and household linen. The objects shown on each of these axes reveal the tastes of the time and highlight the legacy of our ancestors and the heritage of our homes, while dignifying the work of women seamstresses, and especially lacemakers.
