For those who love hand made lace.
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.
