The Wiener Werkstätte Archive in the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art in Vienna contains a multitude
of previously unpublished documents of great artistic sophistication on the design and production of lace and embroidery between
1906 and 1930. Together with objects preserved in the museum, sketches and designs by such important artists as Josef Hoffmann
and Dagobert Peche or Maria Likarz-Strauss, and Mathilde Flögl as well as blueprints, bobbin lace patterns, sample portfolios,
and historical photographs convey an authentic picture of this little-known department of the Wiener Werkstätte.
