Two New Silk Braids

Mary Corbet talks about Soie Tressage, which is Au Ver A Soie's new Satouche and flat braid lines, both very small and elegant silk trims that have multiple applications in needlework and finishing.

I suspect this new line has been spurred by the new interest in making reproduction 17th Century caskets and mirrors as there are many ways to use it in creating the decorative stumpwork that adorns these beauties.  However, there are many other ways to use these new trims such as their use in jewelry making.  Do look at her link to a Pinterest page of such things as it is full of ideas we can crib for our needlepoint.

Thanks once again, Mary!
