The Cluny lace is a continuous threads lace because one uses the same number of bobbins from the beginning to the end of work.

 

It's executed with a thread bigger than other laces like Rosaline lace, Binche lace or Duchess lace ; consequently it's stronger.

Cluny  lace

Cluny lace

Its originality consists in the presence of numerous "points d'esprits" (pehaps in english "spirit stitch" but I'm not sure !) with oval shape. Those ones are often placed in rosette or river.

It's difficult to realize some regular spirit stitches with sharp outlines and harmonious shape. That depends of tension of threads and requires a great mastery of the four bobbins which are useful for this operation. So, it takes a long practical to succeed in it. Of course, if Cluny lace uses the oval spirit stitch principally, other shapes can be used : square, round, rectangle... This lace hasn't got grounds ; motif are bound the ones from others by some brides. It's difficult to know its origin because it has been practiced into numerous countries.
