The Difference Between Lace and Embroidery Explained
At AcutBelow, we want YOU to be as knowledgeable about the products you receive as we are when we make them. That feminine delicate touch stems from intricate complements of lace or embroidery that we like to add to our pieces. Whatever you feel, it is important for you to know exactly what they are and what they mean for your intimate wear. A big question we receive is What exactly is the difference between lace and embroidery?
Lace is a fabric typically made of silk or cotton created by looping, twisting, or knitting threads in a specific fashion in order to become its own fabric or simply trim already existing fabric. Lace does not require already existing fabric to be stable on its own. The small, tight knots make lace a desirable fabric for intimate wear as well as the ability to create patterns in any personal way you want!
Embroidery is a complement onto already existing fabric using a needle to add raised and ornamental designs. Embroidery is typically made from threads of silk or cotton. This allows for much creativity for the designer as stitchings can be as intricate or simple as desired.
Both methods of complementing pieces we offer in our store come customizable so you can choose the one you like or find inspiration for your own!
