It's difficult to see why lace should be so expensive; it's mostly holes. -- Mary Little Wilson

Since my great aunt first taught me tatting, I've been hooked on making lace.  Lately my thoughts
have turned to the use of laser technology.  Laser cut fabrics are popping up all over the runway.  I love these  
Azzedine Alaia shoes from his Spring 2011 collection.  Last fall's AW collection from Balmain was a stunner.  
Laser cut leather combined with beadwork and embroidery.  Be still my heart!

This leather bag from  BCBGMaxazria is less elaborate, but equally charming.

Inspired by these fashions, I wanted to know how I could make my own laser-cut fabrics.  Laser Cutting Shapes in Ohio
created these fabrics for Vera Wang and  Marchesa.  They also work with artists!

Of course, the technology isn't limited to textiles. Check out this fabulous chair by Marcel Wanders!  I want one!

It would go well with the table by Imogen Luddy that I covet.
