The history of German Macrame
Lace is very interesting. German Macrame
Curtain Lace was extremely popular in the United
States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
In fact, the US was the number one market for German
Lace at that time. The Lace you see here is
manufactured in mills located in former East
Germany. World War I had an even greater
impact. The factories were destroyed during
World War II and, once rebuilt, were nationalized by
the East German government. All Lace
production was controlled and sold through special
exporters owned by the East German government.
After the Berlin Wall came down, the grandchildren
of the factory founders bought back the factories
and have been producing this fine quality Macrame
