This ex-designer fabric is guipure or 'bobinnet' lace. Embroidered motifs are connected with thin plaits of yarn rather than the whole fabric being backed in a mesh. This is a more delicate and labour intensive process than making standard lace and is still done on original machines. The design features trailing flowers and leaves separated by lines of geometric shapes, all linked with the characteristic plaits. The design runs in columns along the length of the fabric. The edge is finished with a smaller floral pattern. Heavier than a normal lace, but still with a great drape and a beautiful satin finish. This lace is super luxurious and would make a stunning dress!

We try to take photos that are an accurate representation of our fabrics and their colours, but due to differences between devices and screens the colour may vary slightly. Unfortunately we are unable to offer samples as all of our fabrics are short run end of lines and will likely sell out by the time a sample is delivered. If you'd like to see a video of the fabric or more photos please send us an email or drop us a DM on instagram @newcrafthouse. If you are in London, you can also shop our fabric in person. You can find our opening times here.
*As all of our fabric and trim is deadstock we can't always be sure of the exact composition. We've given our best educated guess above!
