A type of tape lace created in America in the late 1800s and named after the first Duke of Battenburg. Lengths of decoratively woven tapes are made ,first, then looped into the Battenburg design,held and linked with decorative stitches called bars or brides.

The time line and relationships between lace types is a complex subject, and a very similar lace idea has been found on fans and parasols from the 16C.
