aria (It. stitch in the air) is a first example of a real lace.
This is a sewn lace, a thread creating an outline of a pattern is
basted on a waxed fabric or a parchment with several layers of a
durable fabric (a pasteboard works well too), the outline is then
filled with connecting pieces and sewn panels. When the lace is
finished, the basting is cut off. The lace hasnít necessary a
geometric pattern, but when the lace is made on a wooden frame, it
has a geometric pattern still. This technique is very laborious
