NEW!!! Cotton Venice Lace Trims
Hey everybody! We’ve been working on a fun surprise for you… We have finally decided to add just a few of our lace & trims to our online inventory! :O
I did quite a bit of research on lace & discovered that the majority of the lace that I’ve put online is categorized as Chemical Lace. Naturally I wondered what the heck that meant, so I researched some more and found out that Chemical Lace or Schiffli Lace is a machine made lace that is created by embroidering a piece of fabric, treated with a chemical, which disintegrates after the pattern has been embroidered.
Kind of put off by the calling these beautiful laces “Chemical,” I found some vendors that refer to them as Cotton Venice Lace. I found this title much more appealing. Traditionally Venice Lace was created in Italy (surprise, surprise) during the middle ages & is created using needlepoint rather than embroidery techniques. I am no expert of course, so if we have any lace experts amongst our readers, please feel free to correct me. 😀
These laces can be used numerous ways, but some examples include accenting clothing, costumes, home decor, pillows, craft projects, gifts, even some historical recreation costumes, & much much more. The laces in this collection are either entirely cotton, or a cotton blend (possibly rayon or linen. We can’t be 100% sure.) I hope you enjoy our new edition. If these do well, we will probably add more. & don’t forget to tell all your friends about The Fabric Market
