Point de Venice (Belgium)

Point de Venice refers to a needlepoint lace from Venice dating to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries (often known as Gros Point de Venice). But it is also the name of a Belgian needlepoint lace.

The latter type is made in and around the Belgian town of Zele, where there is also a lace school.

It is also known as Belgian Point de Venice, or 'Belgian Venise à Rose'.
