In 1851, the British physician and botanist, John Humphrey Bates, wrote a paper that described how to make a single-use, waterproof, soft, pliable, light-weight, breathable, lightweight and easy to wash lace and bags.
It’s been a favourite since, and has become one of the most famous names in the lace and bag industry.
It has been adopted by almost every manufacturer of the bag industry today, including bags made by many of the biggest names in their own field.
What’s the story behind this famous name?
The answer lies in a simple way of thinking about things.
If we ask, “What does a word mean?” the answer is quite straightforward: it refers to a single quality that the two elements of the word represent.
So, the first word of the name is what a bag or a lace means.
The second word, the word ‘lac’, refers to the elasticity of the cloth that made up the garment.
In this way, the name ‘lace’ has been an enduring reference to quality and comfort, to quality of fabric, to the natural and comfortable movement of a garment through the world.
But, it is not a name that has an obvious meaning for many.
For one thing, the bag itself is a product of history.
From the earliest beginnings of the first human settlements, people made bags that would last a lifetime.
So the name actually refers to something that has endured and is now useful.
But it is also related to a specific type of bag.
It is a kind of ‘lady bag’ that is used for carrying small items such as small, delicate goods and small household items.
In the mid-19th century, the popularity of bag linens increased dramatically, as the industry developed and the demand for these products grew.
The word ‘baguette’ was coined to refer to this type of lacy bag, and by the 1930s, it was used to describe this kind of bag too.
But in the mid 1970s, the term ‘lacy’ was abandoned and replaced by ‘laconic’, a term which meant a bag made of silk or nylon, which was also now popular.
So there was a real disconnect between the two.
As a result, the old meaning of the term was lost, and now, a bag is often referred to as a ‘lacing bag’ or a ‘plastic bag’.
Lacing The lacing term ‘plastics’ is an older one, dating back to the early 1900s, and is derived from the Greek for ‘laces’, ‘cotton’, and ‘plasterers’.
The word is derived both from the Latin word plastus, which means ‘to make soft’, and the Greek word plasteros, which literally means ‘plaster’.
So ‘laced’ is the first element in the name, which in turn refers to an elastic fabric.
Lacing is the process of plating a bag onto the exterior of a cloth.
In lace, this is done by using the end of a needle to pull a thread through the fabric and through a needle or thread, which is then attached to the inside of the fabric.
This process is done in a way that it’s so that the thread does not unravel, allowing it to keep its shape and its elasticity.
Placing a bag into the ‘lastic’ position, or the ‘plasty’ position of the textile, involves tying a thread, usually silk or cotton, to each end of the lace, which holds it firmly in place.
As the thread twists and turns inside the bag, it eventually gets stuck in the fabric, and the bag gets plastered and made of lace.
So ‘placing a lacing bag into a nylon bag’ is a more literal way of saying, “lacing a nylon pouch in a lace bag”.
A lacing or plastering bag is then made by tying the end end of one needle to the end, as shown in the image below.
This needle or needle thread, called a ‘tensioner’, is attached to a needle, usually a ‘cord’, and is then pulled through the bag.
The tensioner gets attached to one of two different parts of the nylon fabric.
One of these is the inner ‘ring’, which holds the bag in place and makes it very strong.
The other part of the ‘ring’ is called the outer ‘lip’, which is attached only to the inner fabric.
It allows the bag to be pulled down through the lining of the garment and then into the bag so that it can be used.
So what do these two parts look like?
Lacing and plasterer bags have two different ways of making the bags, and it is this difference that makes them both useful for many different uses.
