TABLECLOTH AND CURTAIN HISTORY
Nottingham Lace has a long history way back to the
1840's when the machine woven bobbin was first used
in England. Somewhat later in the 19th century
the production was oved to Scotland where this fine
quality is exclusively made. The Lace is woven
in what is called 8, 10, 12 and 14 point quality.
That simply refers to the thread count per inch so
that the lower the number the thicker the weave.
This is reflected in the ultimate pattern designs.
The bolder patterns are made up of the thicker
threads and the finer close knit patterns use the
higher count thread. Nottingham Lace is always
95% Cotton with 5% Polyester for stability.
These fine classical Victorian patterns are
considered throughout the world as being the finest
window covering and table linen lace available for
(either AL or MARCIA) if you have any questions. One
of us is available most of the time. If not, leave
your number. We enjoy helping homeowners with their
Lace Curtain design questions.
