Chantilly Lace: A soft handmade lace, that features embroidered flowers that have been added to a netted background. The details of each flower are visible, and create a beautiful pattern on your dress.
Alencon Lace: This lace features intricate floral designs, placed on top of a sheet netting. The pattern is less apparent, but the lace is easy to identify.
