Lace is a singular material, familiar and so paradoxical. We think it is easy to grasp and yet it is complex, rich with a multitude of definitions and imaginary projections.

Two centuries ago Leavers looms drowned out the handicraft of the lacemakers in the north of France with their mechanical music, helping to shape the industrial landscape of an entire region and, in particular, of the two towns that have given their name to a type of lace : Calais and Caudry.

A protean material that bends itself to every fashion, including the most avant-garde (to which it brings an extra soulfulness), lace proves to be as eclectic as it is polysemous. It lends itself to every play of appearance and dreamt-up identities of every kind. It plays a part in great events and slips into the most intimate moments of our daily lives. Calais-Caudry lace is an unbroken thread that links us to the memory of bel ouvrage, of delicate handiwork and labour raised to the level of art.
