A definite date for the ‘invention’ of lace cannot be given, but there is pictorial evidence that suggests it is most likely it originates from Zurich. Simple plaited laces have been used on costumes in the late fifteenth century, created out of a lace which was brought to Zurich from Italy in 1536. During the sixteenth century lace was developed as an openwork fabric, created with a single thread (needle lace) or with multiple threads (bobbin lace).
