Cluny or Petal tatting owes its origin to a type of bobbin lace made in France in the 19th century. It was made using linen threads less fine than other bobbin laces so it made a very sturdy product. It was used extensively for household linens. The lace was inspired by lace pieces done at the Benedictine monastery in Cluny, France during the 16th century. The lace is easily recognizable by a type of flower that is made from woven petals.
