Maison Sophie Hallette Lacemaking
© Pascal Auve

Since 1887, Maison Sophie Hallette has been perpetuating the art of French lace, particularly the traditional Dentelle de Calais-Caudry. The atelier's unique savoir-faire is rooted in the durability of century-old looms and the skilled hands of each craftsman. From the drafter to the lacemaker, the threader to the winder, each artisan masters his very own technique. A sophisticated mechanism that ensures the authentic quality of Maison Sophie Hallette's lace and tulle.

The maison has collaborated with the greatest designers from Haute Couture to ready-to-wear. The original lace has also inspired the outfits of icons such as Marylin Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and most recently Kate Middleton. More than 130 years later, Maison Sophie Hallette continues to revive the Dentelle de Calais-Caudry with the knowledge of its ancestors and a distinctive modern vision.
