Appliqué lace


Appliqué lace

Applique Lace refers to various types of lace where the decorative motifs are applied (sewn) to an existing openwork fabric, such as tulle, netting, filet or "drawn-thread" and "cut-work". The motifs can be either handmade (needle, bobbin lace or embroidered fabric) or machine made. The same is true for the ground fabric.
