Chantilly Lace - A Rich History

The town of Chantilly in the north of France famously gives its name to an enduringly-popular type of lace. The fabric is exciting, versatile and feminine; Platinum Bridal Fabrics stock a divine selection of Chantilly Lace that can be used to create sensuous, ethereal wedding gowns.

Located close to Paris, for many centuries the beating heart of the fashion industry, Chantilly made the perfect place for the highly-regarded Duchesse de Longueville to set up a lacemaking business. With its delicate drape and signature background of hexagonal mesh, Chantilly lace was an instant sensation and has remained popular to this day, seen everywhere from the aisle to the catwalk.

One of our absolute favourite Chantilly wedding laces is Natasha, which is equally popular among our customers. With an extremely high cotton composition that gives an excellent soft drape, Natasha comprises expertly-corded floral motifs that radiate outwards to the softly-scalloped, identical borders.

Natasha bridal lace is available in a rich palette of 25 colour choices, from the classically-subtle Ivory and China Blue to the daringly-vibrant Chartreuse and Candy Pink. We are also extremely excited to present the fabric rendered in bold, eye-catching and glittering metallic colours - choose from gold or black tulle.
