The fine lace known as »Plauener Spitze« was born in the 1880s in Germany’s Vogtland region. In the fashionable French of the day, novel designs were called »noveautés«. Plauen’s innovative new lace patterns were designed from scratch by students at the art school there and then adopted by the local embroidery and lacemaking industry.
