ABSTRACT
The article chronicles the evolution of lace and lace-making in 17th-century Europe. It is noted that lace was a luxury fabric produced exclusively for consumption by the elite, who displayed it as a symbol of their social standing, wealth and political power. Topics addressed include: the changing fashion for lace products throughout the century, the importance of the lace industry in the region of Flanders, and the two main lace techniques of the period: bobbin and needle lace.
