Calais lace traces its origins to England. At the start of the 19th Century,French lace production began to advance thanks to the mechanical manufacturing of tulle and lace “Leavers”, whose quality was prized at the International Exposition of Brussels in 1910.
Traditionally, Leavers’ French lace is made from black, white, and ivory lace.
