The West African Lace is effortlessly beautiful and has over time become a major form of expression in Africa’s dress culture. They are known for their rich designs and mix-match of vibrant colors, made of delicate fabrics in web-like patterns done by either machine or hand in very rich and elaborate embroidery. West African Lace is different from the laces of Europe and America as they are worn in very traditional designs that demonstrate the rich heritage of Africa. African Laces were specifically and specially made for kings, queens and aristocrats back in the 20th century but today, they can be worn by anyone as traditional African attire.
Here at The Bolakoka Textile Company you will find a wide selection of Laces ranging from French and Tulle Laces, Polished Cotton Laces and Guipure Lace also called Cord Lace all popular in the West African fashion market. We also stock fine voile, Lurex embroidered, suede and velvet embellished laces, to name just a few varieties in a whole range of striking patterns or hand-embroidered pieces with intricately hand-cut designs and beading, including thousands of sequins, stones and Swarovski crystals. The special finish on the African Lace Fabric ensures the highest qualities that neither loses color nor shrink. Counterfeit and fake copies often shrinks and loses both shape and color as it’s made of lower class fabric so one has to be careful when purchasing laces.
