In the region of Nisa are produced several kinds of lacework: bobbins, network node or filet (made on a net), of trifles (made with a shuttle) and goat hair. Of a perfect making, these works are used in shawls. The bobbin lace can be found mainly in coastal areas. Nonetheless, there are two inner cores, Nisa and Farminhão, cherishing this tradition. It appears that this kind of craft was brought by artisans coming from those coastal areas. Nowadays, few are the woman engaging in this kind of handicraft.
