Knitted fabric results not from warp and weft, as usual, but from joining loops. Openwork patterns are formed by shifting loops. Significantly, lace fabric and the technology of its production arose in Italy, where it was called Punto in aria, meaning “stitch in air”. Since the 17th century, Italy has remained one of the main centers of lace production.
One of the peculiarities of the fabric is not only its high quality, but also a recognizable pattern. It is called the Missoni pattern, since this ornament was invented by the Missoni brand. The basis of the recognizable pattern is the alternation of colorful and black threads forming zigzag. Moreover, it makes the advantages of knitted fabric more vivid.
High quality knitted fabric which is produced in factories with modern equipment possesses truly unique characteristics:
• Very comfortable to wear;
• A great variety of patterns and weaving allows you to use knitted fabric for almost any type of clothing;
• Elastic, easily repeats the body shape;
• Run-resistant, lasts for years;
• Hygroscopic, air permeable.
All these qualities perfectly describe openwork knitwear. Due to its characteristics, it is not suitable for the production of cold weather clothing, but instead it perfectly fits for hot summer outfits.
Once, lace knitting was used only for decoration. Nowadays, it is widely used almost everywhere. It is used to sew dresses, blouses, sundresses and suits. The material can also be used to create decor elements, like curtains, tablecloths and so on. It perfectly combines with other tissues and allows women to create a delicate feminine outfit.
Things made of openwork fabric require careful care, as symmetric loops cause fast stretching of the fabric. You should hand wash such things and make them dry in horizontal position. Don’t use a hanger, just fold them carefully to avoid deformation. If you follow all the above prescriptions, you will enjoy romantic outfits made from our fabric for many years!
