Chantilly Lace

September 3, 2010 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

Britex has beauteous Chantilly lace. Chantilly lace was first made in France in the 17th century, and is renowned for its fine ground and scrumptious detail. Chantilly lace is a romantically delicate lace which is ideal for wedding and bridal use, including trim for gowns and veils. Here are two examples of Chantilly laces that live on our 3rd floor bridal department. The lace trim on the left is white, has fairly deep floral scalloped edges with light eyelashes, repeating center floral and leaf medallions, a lovely netting background, is 5” wide, $49.95/yard, and is made in France. The lace trim on the right is a winter-white, has very shallow scalloped edges with light eyelashes, a fine netting background with scattered leaves, a floral and swag border motif, is 6 1/2” wide, $49.95/yard, and is made in Italy. We also offer a mail order service and can ship to most countries. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing this lace.
