Cité de la dentelle et de la mode

Point de gaze lace is so named because of the fineness of the single thread making up the stitches. One of its distinctive traits is the frequent use of overlapping petals embossing rose motifs. This characteristic pattern of the second half of the 19th century is relatively widespread.
