Experience the metamorphosis of a beautiful home with this curtain panel! The loose texture of this Cluny lace gives a pulled appearance to the outline, as if the brides were slightly straining it, and the pin-holes, from the same looseness, appear less precise in form and as free as the butterflies.

Cluny lace is a bobbin lace style, worked as a continuous piece. It is a heavy plaited lace of geometric design, often with radiating thin, pointed wheatears (closely woven leaves). Originating in France, it appeared in the nineteenth century in Le Puy and Mirecourt in Lorraine.

Cluny Lace has a heavy net background in which the stitch is darned. It derives its name from the Museum of Antiquities in the Hotel Cluny, Paris, because this lace originally had a rather medieval appearance. Its patterns were usually of quaint or antique ,1 design, woven to preserve old traditions; birds, animals and flowers predominating. Cluny is now usually made in cotton and somewhat resembles the Maltese. Modern Cluny is a very durable lace, rather simple of pattern. Finer Cluny laces are extensively used for trimming undergarments.
