Crochet Lace Trim

Crochet lace was developed during the 16th century, and was known in Italy as far back as the 1500s under the name of 'nun's work' or 'nun's lace'. Britex carries many varieties of crochet lace, including crochet edging lace, crochet insertion lace, and metallic crochet lace. Crochet lace is superlative as a trim for fine bed linens, doll clothing, vintage aprons, and children’s frocks.
