  • Irish lace, unlike ordinary crocheting, consists of single motifs - leaves, flowers, roses, later linked with a needle-shaped to an openwork meshwork ( the most beautiful ones) or with a thin chain crocheting needle.
  • Guipure ( often confused with embroidery) is a kind of bobbin lace, also known as Venetian lace, extremely difficult, with big, irregular spots and convex relief pattern, most popular in the 19th century.
  • Encoder is most commonly made lace, it can be for example French whose motives are curved wit a delicate twin cord on the outer edges, which makes it more expressive and has a texture. There is an encoder on the smooth back of tuille, muslin, chiffon, silk gauze...or is made of matt embroidery or enriched with metal thread. The eastern pattern is sequined and coral.
  • Macrame lace is a different name for macrame crocheting, Romanian lace, Arab. It is an extremely malleable lace, you can create miracles with it, it seems as laborious as Irish lace but easier. It is made with using a crochet hook and the needle. The base is a variety of strings made of macrame crochet, which then has to be attached on the substrate of thicker material into the desired patterns. Then just the needle is knitted decorative ornaments of flowers or leaves and are combined into a whole.
  • Bobbin lace is made by raddling linen or cotton threats ( sometimes even silk ones) wrapped on special spools called blocks. There are differnt kind of bobbin laces in different parts of the world. Depending on the type of lace it is used several to more than 100 pairs of blocks are used and it is extremely difficult and requiring remarkable attention and pattience to work.

Hence, the prices of the most beautiful laces cost the price of precious jewellery.Previously noble laces were saved in wills, nowadays the most precious ones are kept in museums or collectors and can be seen in haute couture catwalks.The old Lace School in Zakopane exised some time ago, known as "Szpulki", founded in 1883 by Helena Modrzejewska, unfortunately closed in 2008 after 125 years of existance!!! British laces coming from Bedfordshire - Honiton in Devon. Characteristic elements: chains, picots, flower motives, clovers, thistles and flowers. British laces are meshwork laces made on hexagonal background (tuille) characteristic for Buckinghamshire.The distinguishing feature is the use of thick filoselle to hihglight the ornamental motives.
