Brussels lace
is a type of pillow lace that originated in and around Brussels.The term "Brussels lace" has been broadly used for any lace from Brussels, however the term strictly interpreted refers to bobbin lace, in which the pattern is made first, then the ground, or réseau, added, also using bobbin lace.
Brussels lace is not to be confused with Brussels point, which is a type of needle lace, though is sometimes also called "Brussels lace".

Brussels lace is made in pieces, with the flowers and design made separate from the ground, unlike Mechlin lace or Valenciennes lace; because of this, the long threads that form the design always follow the curves of the pattern, whereas in bobbin laces made all at once, the threads are parallel to the length of the lace.

Brussels lace is also distinguished by its réseau or background, the toilé or pattern, and the lack of a cordonnet outlining the pattern. The réseau is hexagonal, with four threads plaited four times on two sides, and two threads twisted twice on the remaining four sides. The toilé can be of two types, the standard woven texture like a piece of fabric, or a more open version with more of the appearance of a netted réseau. This allows for shading in the designs, an effect that was used more in the later designs. In Brussels lace, instead of a cordonnet, the pattern is edged with open stitches, which are then picked up to form the réseau.

Point d'Angleterre
In 1662, the English Parliament passed an act prohibiting the import of all foreign lace, as it was alarmed at how much money was being spent on foreign lace, and wanted to protect the English lace manufacturers. However, the English lace merchants could not supply lace of the same quality as the Brussels lace, and could not get Flemish lace-makers to settle in England.
England also produced inferior flax, and thus could not spin the fine thread required, and so the lace produced was of an inferior quality.
Since the merchants could not produce the lace at home, they resorted to smuggling, and named the smuggled Brussels lace
'Point d'Angleterre', "English point".

Tapestry is a form of textile art, traditionally woven on a vertical loom , but can also be performed on a horizontal loom flat.
A tapestry is composed of two sets of interleaved son, those parallel to the length (the string ) and those parallel to the width (the weft), and the son string are placed under tension on a loom and the weft yarn is transmitted by a mechanical movement back and forth over the whole or part of the item. Often the tapestry is a realization textile decorative furniture finishing in decorative arts .
The tapestry can also be considered as a art in itself.

The tapestry can be woven work on a loom heddles high-or low-lists, or embroidered with or without trade. There are therefore tapestry of "bitches" tapestry of "points". Tapestry woven, who does the work is called "weaver" or "weaver . "
Whether tapestries bitches (smooth) or "needle points", we create a box that is blank in the actual dimensions of the tapestry. The board is not to be confused with a painting, but it can be painted. Some cartonniers, usually working for major manufactures commercial nature, are specialized in this draft. In this case, the filing cabinet is generally not recognized as a "painter."

However, the running of the tapestry can also be the artist who created the box. And painters and artists in other fields have often created their own cartoons for tapestries and gave them to realize or to factories tapestries craftsmen weavers, or to manufacturers in tapestry needle points, or even have themselves made by either of two techniques.

From one bank to another
the funambulist flakes
weave the winter.
