Lace Stretch fabric
Lace is a delicate but beautiful fabric that is often used for decoration, both on clothing and on other textile products. Lace can be created either by hand or using a machine, and is made from yarn or thread in an open-web like pattern. Originally, lace was made from linen, silk, gold or silver threads, but now it is most commonly made from cotton thread. Patterns are stitched into lace fabric, traditionally creating floral patterns, although crafters now sew all manners of patterns into lace fabric.
Lace has been used since the 16th century, and as a result, there are many different varieties of lace, many of which are named after a place. The type of lace is defined by how it is stitched. Some traditional laces such as Mechlin, Valenciennes, Honiton, Brussels, Duchesse, Maltese, Chantilly and Point d’Espagne are well known as types of lace, and all have different methods of creation.
