Chantilly lace fabric is a delicate ornamental lace with a fine honeycomb-shaped ground, outlined pattern, and abundant detail. Not a single fashion season since 2010 has passed without dresses finished with this luxurious lace imbued with romantic mood. Woven out of natural silk, it is traditionally dyed in black, yet the leading French lace brands give it a very versatile colourways these days.
Chantilly lace is mostly about pattern delicacy and complexity, as its timeless motifs are usually elaborately woven flowers, leaves, baskets, vases and roses. In 2018, it is commonly used for bridal gowns, veils, undergarments and lingerie.
