French lace fabrics are various types of laces designed and originated in France. Woven from silk, cotton, viscose and rayon, they come mostly in floral patterns and are often decorated with beading, embroidery and metallic threads. French laces have gained their highest recognition for the exquisite vibe of femininity they have been delivering to a woman’s look since the late Modern period.
Once made by hand, today’s lace fabric is manufactured with the use of special machines. It is an all-time favourite when it comes to dressmaking and is more affordable than it used to be. Still, there are luxury laces – with unique patterns, high quality decorative elements and lots of handwork – and they are quite expensive. Such couture lace fabrics are ideal for evening clothes and bridal wear designed to turn heads.
