Shanghai was an important lace export port in the early 20th century. Due to the lack of documentation, the historical research on the introduction of lace technology centered on Xujiahui Notre Dame is still not exhaustive. This article uses the latest collected literature as a supplement to verify and analyze the construction of the lace workshop of Notre Dame in Xujiahui, Shanghai. Based on the technical principles in the lace system, the time and variety of lace and drawnwork technology in the Shanghai area have been combed and researched, found that the varieties in the Shanghai area are relatively rich, of which the technical traditions of Needle lace and Crochet have been formed very early. As a famous lace variety in Shanghai, the introduction time of Filet lace is not synchronized with the first two.
