Lacebark

 

(Lagetta lintearia), a low tree of the family Thymelaeaceae. It grows in the West Indies. The leaves are alternate and elongated or rounded. The flowers, which are in terminal racemes, are four-parted. The fruit is dry and enclosed in the persistent base of the calyx-tube. The delicate bast bundles of the lacebark, freed of surrounding soft tissues and dried, are used as a lacy fabric in the manufacture of collars, hats, and other products.
