Chantilly lace is known for its fine ground, outlined pattern,[1] and abundant detail.[3] The pattern is outlined in cordonnet, a flat untwisted strand.[4][5][7] The best Chantilly laces were made of silk, and were generally black,[8] which made them suitable for mourning wear. White Chantilly lace was also made, both in linen and silk,[8] though most Chantilly laces were made of silk.[3] The black silk Chantilly lace became especially popular,[3] and there was a large market for it in Spain and the Americas. Chantilly and the Spanish laces (such as Blonde lace) were the most popular black laces. Little white Chantilly was ever {?}made.[6] Another notable thing about Chantilly lace is the use of a half-and-whole stitch as a fill to achieve the effect of light and shadow in the pattern,[3][6] which was generally of flowers. The background, or réseau, was in the form of a six pointed star,[5] and was made of the same thread as the pattern, unlike the otherwise similar Blonde lace.[7] The lace was produced in strips approximately four inches wide, and then joined with a stitch that left no visible seam.[3][4]
Chantilly lace remained popular in the 19th century, when every fashionable lady had a black or white Chantilly shawl, made in Brussels or Ghent.[1]
