Tatting is a technique for handcrafting a particularly durable lace constructed by a series of knots and loops.
Tatting dates to the early 19th century.
It's a rare workmanship these days.
Doily has a special coating to prevent it from losing shape. This coating is permanent,and if you want to refresh your piece,you can hand-wash it in cool water and lay flat to dry. After you wash,you can spray some starching liquid ,any brand,and they will be as beautiful as now for years!
Size 38 CM(14,5 in) across.
