Bobbin made tape laces (braid laces)

Information

Bobbin made tape laces (braid laces)

Varieties of this kind include Russian tape lace, Schneeberger lace, Idrija lace, Lepoglava, Hinojosa and Milanese.  These laces are popular today particularly in Italy, Spain, and Russia.  They go back to the mid 1500s in Italy and Flanders.  Milanese tape lace is more complex and adds fancy decorative stitches and holes into the tape itself.  Hinojosa, dating from at least the late 19th c through the 20th c, is from the south west of Spain and relies on changing the stitch used to allow the tape to expand and contract in width.

Thanks for the information and the beautiful picture.  When you say "the last century" do you mean 20th century (1900-1999) or do you mean 19th century (1800-1899)?  I'm asking because I don't know anything about the history of this particular style of lace.

As a complementary information on Hinojosa Lace, a technical description could be :

\uap>This is an ancient lace recovered in the last century in the South west  of Spain.

\uap>A braid lace, usually made with 10 or 12 pairs of bobbins. The main characteristic is that the designs had not fillings since the braids touch one to another producing a moving sense and changing so many times as needed to fill all spaces (unlimited and continuous moving). There are no dots drawn on the pattern, so the worker has to be a skilled lacemaker.

\uap>The stitches used are common to other Italian and/or centre European laces. The combination of stitches gives a great plasticity to this lace.
