The most creative lace manufacturer in the world

Our Story

"The level of beauty and quality that Solstiss embodies is so rare and special -- the artistry and elegance of Solstiss lace elevates my designs"⏤Elizabeth Fillmore


Respected Worldwide

Solstiss is the world leader in French lace creation and manufacturing. Based in Caudry, and with factories dating back to 1876, it uses only Leavers machines. This century-old expertise has been passed down from generation to generation without ever leaving its ateliers.


Century Old Savoir-Faire

The Solstiss know-how lies in the traditional and unique craftsmanship of its makers, which are the most highly skilled lace workers in the world. The result is a unique lace appearance, so gorgeous, so feminine, so French. It is hard to imagine that those century old, 10 ton machines are giving birth to such amazing delicate lace.


Completely Vertical

Solstiss has a complete vertical structure, from design to manufacturing, to dying, finishing and distribution. It employs over 250 people and operates 110 machines, which represents about 30% of the remaining Leavers looms left in the world today.


Based Internationally

With offices in Paris, Milan and New York, and thanks to its world largest collection of designs, the list of Solstiss clients read like a Who’s Who of the international fashion industry.

I have been purchasing the most beautiful and luxurious fabrics from Solstiss for the past several years and it’s always been a pleasure dealing with Sabine. My fabrics always arrive as expected and on time, even when I’ve had a few specially dyed pieces for specific colors I needed. Going to their showroom is like a kid going into a candy store and I always look forward to their new beautiful collections every year.
