Vologda lace, a brand name today, has a proud history, which began in the 18th century. The patterns of floral, ornamental designs, with flowing and smooth lines, are produced mostly in white. They look like a frosty window in winter. Made of flax or cotton threads, Vologda lace is light, yet durable and strong.

The International Lace Festival VITA LACE collects everything related to the world of linen industry: fabrics, clothes, textile, souvenirs, as well as looms, spinning machines and accessories.

IV International Lace Festival VITA LACE was devoted to preservation and development of handicrafts as part of the original culture and heritage of the nation. The topic is especially important taking into account the fact that 2022 has been declared by the President of Russia the Year of Cultural Heritage of the Peoples of Russia.

Over 300 lace-makers from Russian regions and foreign countries attended it in 2022.

The program of the festival included lace making competitions and exhibitions, thematic lace making workshops, round-table discussions, fashion shows and numerous accompanying events of a creative and cultural nature.

The highlights of the Festival were an exhibition-competition "The Changing Lace: From the Origins to Modern Times", fashion shows and master classes. One of the most spectacular events of the festival was a "Lace Assembly" which was held on the territory of the Vologda State Museum-Reserve. The event was devoted to the 350th anniversary of the birth of the first Russian emperor Peter the Great. The symbols of the campaign were images of the monogram of the first Russian emperor and the imperial crown. During two hours, 250 participants of the festival made these lace works.
