  • Featured on Outlander! Fabulous French Alençon Lace Trim from Britex Fabrics!

    May 17, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    Outlander costume designer Terry Dresbach took full advantage of the width of our lace on the bodice of this turquoise gown. The negative space in the lace creates a striking zig zag pattern running vertically on the torso. The purple color plays beautifully with the iridescent turquoise silk. For more details and everything that is amazing about this dress, check out the discussion on

  • Vintage Silk Chantilly Lace from France

    May 23, 2011 by Britex Fabrics

    Here is some difficult to find silk vintage Chantilly lace. This is an exquisitely delicate and unusual 12" wide Chantilly lace. Simple flowers and leaves are strewn gracefully across a loose netting background, with one gently scalloped edge. Both edges are adorned with wispy eyelash trim. Once hand-washed in cold water, this lace softens up delectably. This would perfect on the bodice of a romantic vintage-inspired wedding gown!
