Breton Work

Breton work is a form of embroidery that was popular in the 1870's and 1880's in Northern Europe and North America. Breton work uses a machine-made net. It is thus sometimes classed as a form of embroidered net lace. Its name is derived from traditional Breton embroidery (France), which was often used on both men and women’s regional dress.
