City of Lace

City of Lace

Much of our lovely lingerie here at Lille is made with Calais lace, which is the finest in the world. While in France, my husband and I decided to visit the city of lace to see how it's made and learn more about its complex production process. Suffice it to say that my mind was officially blown after our trip to La Cite Internationale de la Dentelle et de la Mode du Calais for the Spirit of Lingerie exhibit. There were thousands of pieces of antique lace and lingerie on display, not to mention an entire factory full of functional machines that we were able to see in action. The amount of engineering that goes into one tiny piece of lace is truly mind boggling! I've posted just a few of the dozens of pictures we took, but stop by Lille to see more upon my return.
