SCOTTISH 14 POINT LACE
The manufacturer in Scotland is now the only producer in the world manufacturing with original Nottingham Lace Looms, some of them over 90 years old and up to 1220cms wide. This manufacturing process is extremely labour intensive using traditional skills and processes which are passed on from generation to generation through the manufacturer's apprenticeships. The looms run at a very slow, controlled pace so as to give a high level of quality control: this attention to detail gives the product its niche.
Lace is available in a number of qualities: 8, 10, 12 and 14 point lace. This figure gives the number of vertical threads per inch. The higher this figure, the more delicate the lace and the more detail it is capable of creating. The product lends itself well to the use of pure cotton yarns and the manufacturing process prides itself on the minimal use of polyester: only 5% in any given piece of Scottish Lace.
Scottish Madras weaving began in the 18th Century as the skills were brought to Scotland by Flemish refugees when it existed as a handloom or cottage industry. The handloom was superceded by the power loom a century later and the technology of these original looms is still relevant today. Scottish Madras was originally called Leno Gauze Weave, and the name Madras became a generic term as a result of the large amounts of the product that was distributed through the city of Madras in India.
Scottish Madras has undergone a revolution of its own at the manufacturing factory in Scotland, Twenty years ago, at the end of the last century, the first Vamatex loom was introduced, it was modified solely for the Scottish factory, making it the only mill in the world with access to this bespoke technology. This enabled it to become a world leader, being the only remaining producer of genuine Scottish Madras.
