What is Lace fabric?

Lace is a delicate fabric that was originally made from yarn or thread that was produced from linen, silk, gold, and silver.

It is debatable where it originated since both the Italians and the Flemish Belgians, claim to have invented it in the ‘modern’ times when compared with ancient Egypt. Lace has been made since the 15th century in these times.

There are many varieties of lace. The main ones are needle lace, cutwork, bobbin lace, crocheted, and knitted. Most kinds of lace are expensive because the process of making them is time-consuming.
