We have named our bobbin lace thread cocoons « Calais » as a tribute to the northern French town, famous for their mechanical lace. At the beginning of the 19th century, it was in Calais that English industrial pioneers installed the first looms with the desire to imitate hand-made lace. The superb lace museum in Calais retraces the history of this craft which first appeared in the 16th century.
