BEAUTIFUL COTTON MADRAS lace for panel or tablecover



Madras, a woven lace, is named after the city in India where the Victorians set up lace making factories in the mid 19th century. the weaving process for Madras lace is slow, taking a full day to produce twelve yards. The fabric is woven onto a net that is so sheer it resembles silk. This is the very finest lace made today. The result is a truly magnificent fabric with a rich overlay of pattern.
 Although all the Madras fabrics are as sheer as silk, the solid weave of the lace offers considerable privacy.
 An elegant and normally very costly fabric, Madras is currently on display in the White House in a number of room settings 


Madras lace is the finest woven lace made today. The manufacturing process is slow - taking a full day to produce 12 yards

More About Scottish Lace Scottish lace is manufactured on traditional Nottingham lace looms. The fineness of the weave is determined by the number of threads per inch (points) and ranges from 8 point to 14 point. The higher the point the more threads per inch and the finer the weave. The number indicates the tightness of weave - 14-point lace has 14 stitches per inch. The cotton for each design is hand strung on the same giant looms that have been producing this wonderful product since the 1870's. It is the finest Nottingham lace manufactured today. Each pattern takes months of preparation. Many of the designs have original card patterns which date from the mid 1800's. Scottish lace comes directly to you from Scotland's own 'Lace Valley' where this lace has been traditionally woven on Nottingham looms since the 1870's. This "old-country" weaving method involves intricate steps which not only authenticates the lace, but give its look and feel a certain quality not found in knitted laces available today. From the beginning of the industry until the end of the 20th century, at least 99% of the lace and net made in Britain passed through Nottingham. It was only natural that lace made on machines in Britain came to be called "Nottingham Lace." Palatial Lace was established in 1979, they have amassed a large wealth of knowledge of the patterns and designs manufactured by the Victorian mills. All lace is supplied directly to you by Palatial Lace Interiors.


Please note - the lace is for sale online only and is not available to view or pick up from the Centre.
