Cotton Lace


Believe it or not, lace can be made with cotton! This delicate, decorative fabric is created by looping, interlacing or knitting thread in elaborate, open web-like patterns. Dating back to the 15th century, lace-making developed from embroidery and became an art of its own. Today, most lace is machine-made, but fine, handmade lace can cost hundreds of dollars per yard. While it’s used for everything from trim and tablecloths to curtains, camisoles, underwear, and dresses, lace is at its finest in the wedding gown.
