Fabric trimmings go back hundreds of years when they had to be hand made and only the very rich could afford do embellish their cloaks and clothing. A stitch at a time and silk threads made the elegant trims totally unaffordale to the lower classes. Trims were held in high regard.
When the industrial revelution came and machines replaced hand sewing, fabric trims became available to all and the victorian age came about where just about all clothing had colorful fabric trims.
Today fabric trimmings are used for clothing, pillows, window treatments, upholstery, doll clothes, scrapbooking, crafts, costumes, theatrical productions, furniture, and many other uses. Fabric trims inspire.
Fabric trimmings add a dimension of color and depth unachievable by just fabric alone. Look at any decorator magazine today and chances are you'll see fabric trims in most of the pictures.
