Apparel lace produced on an efficient Multibar Lace machine with 46 guide bars
Lace is an indispensable accessory in the world of women’s fashions, and has not been regarded as an unaffordable luxury for many years now. In fact, efficient production techniques have put these filigree fabrics well within the reach of every woman’s purse. For example, KARL MAYER’s ML 46 has been setting new standards in terms of productivity. At a working width of 134", this Multibar Lace machine can reach speeds of 850 min-1 and can produce an impressive range of high-end fabrics.
The sample shown here is just one example of a fabric from its huge repertoire of patterning possibilities for producing fabric grounds and motifs. This lightweight fabric features eye-catching flowers, subtle decorative effects and a filigree leaf design on an open net ground. This full-width apparel fabric was produced in a gauge of E 24 to cater for the current trend for fine fabrics. Another feature is that the panels are edged with a narrow, curved border. This unobtrusive border means that skirts, dresses and tops do not have to be hemmed during making-up.
