Cotton Lace Imported from the UK
The company- the last manufacturers of cotton leavers laces in the UK, is owned and managed by the eighth and ninth generations , of the same family. They were already framework knitters and flax dressers by the 1730s and started making lace when this fabric was first produced by machines in the 1760s, at the start of the Industrial Revolution. Throughout the last one hundred and fifty years the company Cluny Lace has continued to build up a data bank of hundreds of lace patterns. By combining the best of old traditions with new technology they are still able to produce in a wide range of exquisite designs of Leavers Cluny style lace allovers, edgings and insertions and Leavers Fine Cotton Valenciennes style lace allovers, edgings, galloons and insertions. Many of the lace patterns still used today were designed and draughted by the sixth and seventh generations of the family. No other manufacturer in the world produces the same range of patterns .
