Like many, I had to look up the spelling for these dust and crumb catchers.
These little, laced threads that intertwine in a delicate way, probably not meant as a way to collect the most amount of dust mites possible, but they did.
And perhaps, their demise has lead to more sanitary conditions in current times.
They have no use in modern society. These crocheted bits of grossness were produced during a time when Netflix did not exist, and were considered quite beautiful.
They were the first artificial web. A simple tiny thread, networked into a beautiful thing that could go on forever!
I will come back in a bit.
