Did you know that Lace was first mention in the Bible? Yes Isaiah, Chaper 19 verse 9: "Moreover, they that work in fine flax and they that weave networks, shall be confounded', and many of us certainly have been at times when the threads break and the mistake that you have only just noticed means undoing a lot of work to correct.
Another fact about lace is that knotted hair nets of bobbin laces and embroidered laces were found in the tombs in Thebes, Egypt. Many lace hair nets were adorned with tiny porcelain beads and figures strung amongst the meshes.
It wasn't until the 16th century that the use of lace became popular. It seems the Italians have the earliest documented lace patterns dated 1476. Then we see books published in Zurich, Switzerland around 1550. Bobbin lace became popular in Germany in 1526.
So lace is really "timeless". Cherished through centuries for its timeless elegance, lace is a treasured textile today offering a connection to a simpler, gentler time. Lace is versatile. Contemporary or traditional, country or vintage decor, lace has an air of sophistication, a hint of nostalgia. Lace is beautiful. With intricate motifs, delicate textures, romantic appeal, lace is more than timeless and versatile: it is useful, beautiful works of art. The U.S. leader in lace for a quarter century, Heritage is family owned, proudly building on an American tradition of craftsmanship, quality and innovation. Heritage artisans fashion each piece of lace with great care, knowing the useful objects they create for today are tomorrow's keepsakes. Enduring, romantic, and beyond fashion, lace is always in style.
In November 1983, Bruce Heerema and Mark De Cook founded Heritage Imports, which later became Heritage Lace in 1998. The firm began importing and marketing European curtain lace in bolts, and soon found a niche serving the needs of small, independent speciality retailers such as Linen Locker. With a strong commitment to quality and service, Heritage Lace offered products which were readily accepted by consumers, and distributions throughout North America. In the early 1990's, which was about the time Linen Locker was founded, Heritage Lace expanded into ready made lace curtains and table accessories.
Heritage Lace has grown into a large collection of home products. Their selection now includes many styles of lace curtains, table cloths, wall decor, mantel scarves as well as lace gift specialties. Each piece is original and exclusive because it is designed in its own factory located in Oxford North Carolina, and Pella, Iowa.
Heritage Lace is now a booming company! Over time the Heritage lace line continues to expand, the commitment to quality and service is as strong as ever, and Heritage Lace is recognized for innovation and leadership in its industry. They create new products with ideas for the consumers needs. At Heritage Lace each concept begins as a rough sketch by staff designers. Once perfected, a drawing is translated into computer data. The computer data then transforms a complete original idea into beautiful lace.
A talented "in house" design team in North Carolina, enables Heritage Lace to respond creatively to market demand for new products. Heritage Lace is unique in that their factory is located in Oxford, North Carolina, USA. The factory is highly automated. It is operated according to the strictest quality and production standards.
