Chantilly Lace – a very fine and delicate lace with a soft handle.
The motifs are sometimes outlined in a heavier silky thread or exhibit shading effects and it normally has doubled scalloped edges. This French lace featured in Kate Middleton’s dress, (called Kate by us!) and is named after the town in the north of France where the fabric was first created by the Duchesse de Longueville, a noted member of the aristocracy with a reputation for being a bit of a trendsetter! Also known as Galloon Lace, the fabric is created from an orderly mesh of hexagons, imbuing it with extra strength and a unique handle. Gorgeously tactile, delicate and feminine, with a sweeping drape unlike that of any other wedding material, Chantilly Lace is a staple of bridal couture. Please browse our extensive collection but may we recommend you start with Antoinette, Francesca and Mitzi. As well as a range of Chantilly Lace in both ivory and white, we also stock hand beaded Chantilly lace, hand embellished it is a wonderfully artisan and sparkly fabric to use on a dress. Have a look at Bryony, Philamina and Anastasia.
