Alencon Lace

Sometimes called the “queen of lace," this French style (which dates back to the 16th century) has a distinct floral pattern woven into the fabric then outlined with corded detail. It's characterized by its 3-D effect, and frequently decorated with seed pearls and sequins.
These elegant types of lace were originally were made exclusively in Northern France. Also known as Corded lace, they are formed by outlining details in the lace using a heavier thread or cord, giving these laces a three dimensional look. They are generally fine, light and floaty and make beautiful wedding dresses.
