The OJ 59/1 B and OJ 83/1 B Lace.Express models are the latest technical innovations in jacquard multi-bar raschel machines by Karl Mayer, a company that is developing its lace products all the time. The non-stretch, all-over lace is intended for use in apparel. Its decorative, scalloped edges can be used directly for the hems of dresses, skirts, and tops.

A pattern was developed in time for the ITM exhibition in April 2018 in Istanbul, which allowed the Lace-Express to demonstrate all its special features when processing bourdon cord.

The scalloped design is continued into the lace fabric to create decorative, floral motifs in a striped arrangement. The flowers and leaves are interpreted graphically and arranged on a ground that is patterned with different designs. Narrow net patterns, organic structures and open-pored holes create a dynamic design ensemble in the ground. The types of yarns used make the design appear to move.

A combination of semi-matt, textured and shimmering yarns creates an eye-catching look with contrasting and surprising effects. Bourdon cord also creates a three-dimensional effect in the surface and is representative of a new trend. Liners with an embroidered look and 3D effects are still popular for fashion lace, but a high level of know-how and expertise are needed to produce them. Polyamide yarns in a count of 1/40 f 9 were used for the pillar stitches and for incorporating the bourdon cords, which have a count of about 1,600 denier.

The yarns were processed on an OJ 59/1 B in a gauge of E 24. The Lace.Express is also available in a gauge of E 18, so that it can also be used to process thicker types of bourdon cord. (GK)
