The HEART motif is an important element in Slovenian traditional design and folklore – as decoration in architecture (in railings, shutters,..), cuisine (Škofja Loka bread, Lect honey bread), butter molds, one of the most typical lace designs, etc.
Mega heart is created in the same way as the typical small lace which is usually sold as a souvenir, just about 40-times larger.
