Chantilly trim is sheer, soft, smooth and airy sort of trim created in a Chantilly lace technique. Chantilly trims come in a range of patterns, colours and widths. There are narrow trims suitable for making a subtle accent on a garment, and wide ones that can decorate the entire bodice or replace fabric in a decollete area.
A typical Chantilly lace trim has one or two eyelash scallops. Traditionally, it features a floral or botanical pattern, often on a point d’esprit background. It is the most lightweight type of trim often chosen to decorate bridal wear, to make veils and gloves, lace boleros and capes.
Chantilly lace trims come in amazingly versatile colour palette: from classic black and bridal white to passion red, soothing blue and sunny yellow.
Most Chantilly lace trims are produced in France and Italy. You can choose between floral, botanical, geometric, or abstract patterns characterized by abundant detail. There are 100% silk lace trims with the smoothest hand and the subtlest sheen; soft viscose and rayon Chantilly trims; lace trims embellished with sequins, beads, glass bugles and appliques. Such designs are almost always handmade.
