Cluny and Venice (or Venise) Laces<p>click here for more
Cluny lace was inspired by handmade lace created during the 16th century. It was manufactured and gained popularity during the second half of the 19th century.

Venise lace, sometimes called Venice lace, is a firm, heavy lace with an open background. Venise lace is a most elegant lace, featuring close stitches that create a heavy, raised design.

The embroidery or buttonhole stitches are stitched on aetx cloth, which disintegrates in the finishing process, thereby leaving the motifs to stand alone. A guipure lace is the French word meaning "lace without any ground mesh." Most commonly, the term "guipure" is used in the European market, while "venise" is used in the United States to describe the same type of lace. Instead of being woven on a net background like chantilly or alençon lace, venise laces have silky threads connecting the motifs with an open work feeling.
