TRADITIONAL LACE > Crocheted Lace
CROCHETED LACE is derived from an early form of crochet dating back to the 16th century and for a long time was not regarded as 'true' lace.
It is similar in form to guipure lace in that it does not have a net background but it generally uses finer, more matt cotton threads and uses variation in hole size and scalloped edges to enhance the "lacy' look.
Crochet lace comes in a variety of colour. It has a very vintage feel but is also used for a boho look. It has moved beyond it's traditional haberdashery use in doilies, fine bed linen, dolls and children's clothing and vintage aprons.
The feel of the lace can vary dependant on the thickness of the threads used. Some being more light and fine and others more coarse.
