Bruges Lace Crochet - Old Technique and Fashion Design
Bruges Crochet is an imitation of bobbin lace, done using crochet hook. It borrowed the name from Bruges(Bruge) sity in Belgeum as it is famous for beautiful handmade bobbin laces. It has also been called "Russian tape crochet" as finished crocheted lace looks like Vologoda Needle Laces that are made with koklushki.
Bruges crochet is an endless road to discover, you can create your own lace and ornaments using this technique. I love using Bruges ornaments when designing closing. Here are some pictures of my work.
