It looks like it might be ribbon pulled though some lace.  I had not heard of it before.

ah, they misspelled it.  It is bridging, which is a type of lace, inserted between other laces.  Either looks like a ladder, or crisscrossed.  Ribbon is sometimes pulled though the 'rungs' of the ladder.

  • Insertion lace — It is even on both sides. It is intended to be inserted
    between two other laces or fabrics.
  • Embroidered insertion — A wider, embroidered trim designed to be inserted between two laces or fabrics.Heirloom sewing lace elements
  • Bridging lace — Can be laddered or criss-cross, as shown in this example. The openwork is perfect for weaving ribbon through.
  • Edging lace — (Not shown here). What you normally think of when speaking of lace, where one edge is pretty and most likely scalloped and the other edge is straight or plain, intended to be inserted into a seam.

you can crochet a bridging lace between two pieces.   you can also do a pulled thread technique that creates a bridge to pull ribbon through.
