Ebony Lace aims to push traditional boundaries in lace-making using unique construction and natural eucalyptus dye processes. Through a unique exploration of black dye, silk and thread the lace pays homage to traditional black laces commonly known as Chantilly Lace. It contributes to approaches in the Slow Design movement and has implications for sustainable design, reuse and upcycling. The work demonstrates potential solutions to fabric waste as future lace can be created using discarded textile off cuts for bespoke Interior and Fashion.
