About this design

Lace is part of a collection called Ribbons, Lace, Silk and Satin, which was inspired by textiles. After Ribbons, Lace was the next most popular design of the four. Please note that one of the very few errors in Mark Hill's book on IOWSG [1] concerns Lace and Satin. On page 112 the image to the left should be captioned 'Lace' and not 'Satin' and on page 113 in the first column 'Lace' should be replaced with 'Satin' and 'Satin' should be replaced with 'Lace'.

Lace followed on from a trial for Royal Brierley's 'Studio' range made in 1986. The similarity of the trial to Lace is obvious from the pictures at the bottom of this page.
