Lace making.....

is an ancient craft that was developed in the late 15th/early 16th century. A truce lace is created when a thread is looped, twisted or braided to other threads independently from a backing fabric.

"I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of nature; lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of trees embroider across the sky, and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin."
~Coco Chanel, April 29, 1939~
