The Heba, Mairi & Kelly Veils
Nura wearing her 110" white "kelly" lace mantilla
The Mantilla veil has lace all around it, normally flat and worn on top
or at the back of the head. I use heavy corded laces for the mantillas- two of these laces- The Heba and Mairi laces- are one way laces and only look ok with the face showing- so are really only
suited to Mantilla or single layer veil styles.
All the other laces are fine as two layer veils.
This page is dedicated to the 3 corded laces.

The 3 corded laces

The "Heba" Lace veil
The "Heba" lace is also a one way lace with the cording on one face, so is only suitable for a single layer veil or Mantilla style.
The real Mairi wearing her 36" mantilla style veil
The "Mairi" lace veil.
The "Mairi" lace is a one way lace with a "face" so is not suitable to me made into a two layer veil. Only really for mantilla style or single layered.

The "Kelly" Lace
The "Kelly lace is very large- it is 8" deep. It is a one way lace with the cording on one side-the face - however it is not as heavy as the "Heba" & "Mairi" so could be made as a two layer
