The oldest preserved braided lace was found in Lučenec and Košice area and are dated to the 16th century. The topic of this article as well as of the relevant dissertation thesis is restoring research, the restoring and preservation of braided lace – particularly of an archaeological discovery from the basilica of St. Egidius in Bardejov during research made in 2008 and 2009.
