It's the small english town of Devonshire which gave its name at this lovely

non-continuous lace.

After 1825, Honiton realized all kinds of flowers and numerous networks to be applied.


The Queen Victoria's wedding dress was executed in Honiton lace by William Dyce, a young artist.


In despite of the help of Queen Victoria, the industry of lace was on the decline.


However, the technique and aspect of Honiton lace improved in the course of nineteenth century.


Its motif were made of floral parts bound between them by small braids. It was very appreciated in the fashion of this epoch. The floral Honiton lace was also named "pillow lace".
