Flat Venice Lace or Point Plat de Venice or Cantu Lace is made from 100% Linen and is 100% hand stitched with a needle.
Venice Lace is known world wide as the “Lace of All Laces”. It is compact in design, distinct in structure and refined in craftsmanship; an excellent work of art. The thread used only accounts for 4% of the total cost.The labour required for such hand embroidery is tremendous.
Lace makers have always been very creative and flexible, combining different, and often unexpected lacemaking techniques to form a single piece. Machine made lace appears fuzzy in contrast to the crispness and sharpness of the designs of the handmade versions.
Flat Venice Lace and Point de Venice Lace are no longer manufactured. These laces are so labour intensive to created that the hours involved in the creation and the cost of labour in today’s economy have forced the price to rise to a point that these laces are no longer marketable in today’s society.
