LAST OF BRITISH LACE

A dress for a princess

The Cluny Lace Company Ltd in Ilkstone Derbyshire is the last of the once great and thriving machine-made lace industry in England. It has survived by using its 19th century Leavers machines. Those machines made lace for the dress worn by Kate Middleton when she married Prince William as well as for other bridal party members.
