Hainault lace

Hainault lace is named after the Belgian province of Hainault (Henegouwen). Hainaught lace was produced in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century and resembles coarse forms of Bedfordshire lace, itself a development of Genoese and Maltese lace forms. It is characterised by the so-called wheatears.
