These not only included attractive ribbons, trimmings, and lace, but also appliqué and beading work, all of which were increasingly determining the appearance of garments and dresses. These products saw a huge rise in popularity because, thanks to the new embroidery, ribbon, and lace-making machines, they could now be industrially produced.
