SHORT ANTIQUE FRENCH LACE HISTORY
by 
Sophie Juramy

According to a French legend "lace" was invented during the Middle-Age by a young woman in the center of France in le Puy-en-Velay. A bishop has asked her to design a delicate costume to dress Our Lady and she decided to braid threads together to create a very delicate and transparent new kind of fabric named "LACE".
Lace popularity has increased thanks to pilgrims from Saint Jack of Compostel road crossing this French lace town. 
On the other end it's been said that lace was imported from Italy during the Renaissance period!

During 17th century "lace" has become very popular and used to ornate collar, cuffs, gloves, boots...
Finally, a "business" network was structured between "Lace Makers" in villages and "Lace Collectors" distributing and selling laces.
During the French Revolution 1789 it was forbidden to make lace. "Lace makers" had to hide themselves to work.

Most of lace were made of cotton, hemp and linen.
To be able to face competition Designers from Le Puy-en-Velay created  in 18th Century a new type of lace called "BLONDES" made of silk.

New trend of lace were invented. Professional lace makers have created specifications with a "Stitch" named by their Town of origin such as :

*Alençon lace, probably the most expensive, needle lace with embroidered loops highlighted more or less.
*Calais lace, mechanical lace on 19th Century Leavers Loom.
*Chantilly lace , bobbin lace with silk thread designing baskets, vases and flowers.
*Cluny lace, bobbin geometrical lace.
*Le Puy-en-Velay lace, silk Lace, geometrical bobbin lace with "point d'esprit" stitch.
And so on ...
*Guipure lace, lace highlighted by small cords.
However Cluny lace could be created in Le Puy-en -Velay , Chantilly lace in Calais and so on...
Hand-crocheted lace is more a "home" made lace.
Lace making was taught in French school and in orphanage until early 20th century.
Mechanical lace started early 19th century and is still on
