Lace is the most delicate fabric in the world and is made by weaving yarn or thread to create an open web-like design. Before, lace is created using silver, gold or linen threads. Today, the most common thread of a lace fabric is cotton. The term, lace, came from the Old French world, las, which means noose or string.
Lace comes in a few common variants including beaded lace, Limerick lace, corded lace, guipure lace and filet lace. This type of fabric is not that comfortable to wear, but it is widely used in the fashion industry because its mesh-like appearance adds a touch of class and elegance to any types of fabric. Because of its appealing designs, it is perfect for wedding gowns and gloves. Narrow laces are used for trims while the broad lace fabrics are used as decors in curtains, outfits, and table cloths.
