Guipure lace is a style of bobbin lace characterised by the unique way in which its motifs are connected: plaits or bars are used in place of mesh or net. Bridal Fabrics stock an extensive range of guipure lace styles and here are four of our favourites...
Matching edges frame this tasteful and sophisticated design, which features an all-over floral pattern.
In addition to the 6cm flowers that make up the main design, petite bloom embellishments have been added at intervals: sitting on top of the fabric, these flowers give a wonderful three-dimensional effect.
The base of Lucy wedding fabric is a work of art in itself, glittering with Champagne-coloured metallic thread.
