The Island of Burano. An enchanting combination of water, colour and tradition.
Burano is one of many islands of the Venetian Lagoon. Some 3.000 inhabitants populate the island composed of four smaller islands which are separated by internal canals and five sestieri, or districts.
Originally, Burano was a small fishing community, and the art of Venetian lacemaking was traditionally carried out by women sitting in a chair on their doorstep, working together with friends and relatives. The characteristic colours of the houses indicate property ownership across the island.
Colourful homes, hanging clothes, women making lace: all elements that make a stop in Burano and a visit to our Atelier a must-do. If you book using our Booking Form, Martina Vidal staff will walk you through the modern collections and antique lace of which we are so proud, and protective.
You will get a chance to get a close look at how lace is made, talk to our lace workers and maybe even try to glean some of their secrets. Spend time relaxing in our garden and tasting typical Buranelli biscuits.
Martina Vidal awaits you.
