There’s a small city in Nord-Pas-de-Calais called Caudry. This is where the heart of French lacemaking is beating. Generations of its citizens have been working on complicated Leavers lace looms and perfecting their art.
Lots of laces in our shop come from the small factory founded in Caudry by Jean Bracq in 1889. Click here to know a little more about history of french lace and Jean Bracq.
And in the city center you can find a Museum of French lace with a sculpture representing Julien Bracq (1889-1990). It was offered to the museum by his son Jean Bracq and now you can find it near the front doors there.
Here we want to show how different and amazing french laces are!
