Chantilly Lace is a delicate bobbin lace, which is characterised by floral and scroll design motifs outlined in a thick thread, often with some dotted decoration, and on a hexagonal mesh background. The best qualities of Chantilly Laces are made from silk, although Linen and Cotton are being used more and more frequently. It was first made in the 18th Century in the town of Chantilly, Northern France. Chantilly lace is very popular with Bridal wear and is most commonly used for veils, shawls and other trimmings. It was also made extensively in black, and was very popular for mourning wear.
