Elise Anderegg tells us about her love for this airy, enchanting material.

"I was lucky to begin my career at the Maison Solstiss, one of the most respected “Maisons de dentelles” in France. Seeing this nosy looms, weighing several tons, waiving with an insane precision this most delicate and complexe material was a revelation for me. I love the intemporality of lace, its sensual feminity, it inspires me in thousand of ways."
