Filet lace

Filet lace (also known as Embroidery on Knotted Net, Lacis, Filet Brodé and Poinct Conté) is a needle lace created by darning on a ground of knotted net or netting. The net made be made by hand or machine.

Here are examples of Filet lace from my lace collection (although, as I am not an expert, some of my identification may be wrong). Click on a picture below to go to a page about the piece, with a large scale image.
