Scottish and Madras Lace Panels

 Lace Panels

We are delighted to show a new range of exquisite hand-loomed lace panels made exclusively in Scotland.

Founded in 1900 it has has built its reputation on the specialist skills and traditions prevalent in its products, and thus attracts discerning clients from across the globe.

Combining high-tech production techniques, helped by a local inventor, meant increased productivity.  This combination of innovation and technology using an archive of over 50,000 original drawings gives the company a unique place in the market and increased lead time for clients. They have built their reputation on specialist skills and traditional workmanship.

They are now the only producer in the world manufacturing with original Nottingham Lace Looms, some of them over 90 years old and up to 1220cms wide. This manufacturing process is extremely labour intensive using traditional skills and processes which are passed on from generation to generation through MYB’s apprenticeships. The looms run at a very slow, controlled pace so as to give a high level of quality control: this attention to detail gives the product its niche.

Lace is available in a number of qualities: 8, 10, 12 and 14 point lace. This figure gives the number of vertical threads per inch. The higher this figure, the more delicate the lace and the more detail it is capable of creating. The product lends itself well to the use of pure cotton yarns and prides itself on the minimal use of polyester: only 5% in any given piece of Scottish Lace. They are the only remaining producer of Madras Lace in the world.

Scottish Madras weaving began in the 18th Century as the skills were brought to Scotland by Flemish refugees when it existed as a handloom or cottage industry. The handloom was superceded by the power loom a century later and the technology of these original looms is still relevant today. Scottish Madras was originally called Leno Gauze Weave, and the name Madras became a generic term as a result of the large amounts of the product that was distributed through the city of Madras in India.

Used mainly by interior designers and architects it unlikely these beautiful lace panels will be found on any other websites.
