Two often asked questions concern the origins of doily designs and names. The answers are interesting.
We look for exceptional lace patterns. The pattern must be classic and elegant but also modern and versatile, so that it works with traditional, contemporary and modern surroundings. When we find one, we give the lace pattern to our craftspeople who recreate and refine the design for our lace dollies and placemats.
The lace design’s name will usually denote the pattern’s lace origin, but our doilies are uniquely Royal.
