Past And Present Of Lace Fabric

August 22, 2020

Lace is a knitted hollow mesh fabric. Lace has various knitting methods, but in terms of output, production scale and market share, knitted warp knitting accounts for the vast majority. In addition, it is also possible to embroider the base fabric with water-soluble materials, and then remove the method of forming the base fabric into lace alone, or use various weaving methods to make lace.

 Lace craftsmanship can be traced in Flanders (between Belgium and France) in the early 14th century, but the real production started in Italy (in Spain) in the early 16th century. In Italy at that time, noble women weave lace together. Soon, these ladies gave the lace weaving craft to the nuns of the church. The nuns found that weaving lace is not only beneficial to their contemplation and meditation, but also can make some extra money, so the activity of weaving lace quickly became popular among convents in Italy. During the Baroque period, lace was widely used in the collars, cuffs, and plackets of noble clothing.

During the Rococo period, lace began to be applied to women's petticoats and robes.

In the 18th century, lace developed into a symbol of feminism. The movie "Jezebel" tells the story of lace and feminism. In the 18th century, noble ladies liked a lace or hat decorated with ribbons as hair ornaments, which became fontages.

In the 19th century, under the influence of neoclassicism, the image of lace changed and became a representative of romance.

Nowadays, lace has entered the homes of ordinary people and is widely used in the field of ready-to-wear. It is romantic and elegant, sexy and enchanting, or playful and cute.
