Item details

Gorgeous Antique French Trim made from a dark bronze gold metallic thread. This tubular braid or cord thread has a central dark thread and the woven mesh of gold surrounds it.

Price is for 1 yard. I have more available.

Ideal for use in an applique couching design. The woven metallic tube can be stretched out so that it can be adapted for use in different projects.

Wonderful trim for an evening dress or theatrical costumes - many projects would be enhanced by this lovely trim.

CONDITION: The trim is in fabulous condition, it has an aged patina, it was found in south west France.


MEASUREMENTS: WIDTH of trim from side to side placed over a ruler: 1/16th inch 1.5mm.
I have a roll of this cord, sold by the yard. If more than one yard is required it will be supplied in one continuous length.

Standard shipping for this item is very economical, please note if you require tracking please select the shipping upgrade. France standard shipping includes tracking.

If you have ordered a longer length I will refund any excess shipping paid or contact me beforehand to adjust shipping..
