Original binder entry: Arabian Lace: Mixed tape lace collar. This small white collar is of the type worn on a high ribbon stock in the eighties and nineties. A fine lace type is used here and needleworked into the shapes required by the pattern. A jours in bullion stitch and spider webs fill the open spaces between the tapes. This type is also called Bohemian or Battenburg.
