The History of Tatting
Tatting is related to a technique of rope looping and knotting originally used by sailors, fishermen and net makers traceable as far back as ancient Egypt. Some historians maintain that tatting as a form of lace making began more than 200 years ago in France where it was called frivolite. Others believe it originated in Italy (chicchicchanario) or in German (schiffchenarbeit).
