 Internet e Ue fanno rinascere l’arte del tombolo - Kataweb
Gli strumenti delle merlettaie sono semplici come quelli di un cartografo: il tombolo, un rullo largo 25-30 centimetri del diametro di 15-20 centimetri imbottito di crine vegetale, oppure in passato di paglia, foglie secche o segatura, e i fuselli, bastoncini sui quali viene avvolto il filo per lo più di cotone.
Si può affermare che tutta l’economia della città dipendesse dalla folle danza dei fuselli: perché il merletto delle Fiandre e di Brabante era ricercato in tutta Europa, vale a dire in tutto il mondo del tempo.
Ai pratici che chiedono a cosa possa servire imparare il tombolo si può rispondere che economicamente è un’attività di difficile futuro.
