Filet fabric is a type of needle lace fabric that is really decorative. It is made by darning or embroidering the elaborate pattern onto a knotted square or diamond mesh net known as a ‘Filet Net.’ It is an ancient art, meaning that filet lace has been manufactured by hand for hundreds of years, although, it is now more commonly machine produced. The term ‘Filet’ comes from the French meaning network. Originally this lace was formally called ‘Lacis.’ It is also known as ‘Filet Brode’ or ‘Filet Guipure.’
