The stick lace is originally a traditional European handmade lace. It is derived from the braiding process. In ancient times, the European folks used the fish bone as a pin, tied it on the mat, and then used the sheep's foot bone as the bobbin. The lace made was called the bone lace, which was later called the bobbin lace. In the 16th century, European bobbin laces developed. In the 17th century, Brussels, Belgium was the production center for bobbin laces. The bobbin lace of Genoa, Italy is also famous. In the 18th century, the lace of the bobbin was almost all over Europe, and the varieties were mostly underwear or handkerchiefs, sleeves and so on. At the end of the 19th century, the European bobbin lace process was introduced to Shandong Province, China. In the 21st year of Emperor Guangxu of Qing Dynasty (1895), Yantai women began to learn to make lace with a bobbin. Because the bobbin is commonly known as a rod in the local area, it is called a stick lace in China. Since the 20th century, the shackles have declined in Europe and the United States, and have developed in China, mainly in the Yantai and Weifang areas of Shandong.
