Polyester Soutache Braid

Polyester Soutache Braid
Soutache otherwise referred to as Russian Braid is one of the elements of the French art of passementerie which included the creation of tassels, fringes, military braid and other textile embellishments. For bead embroidery and soutache jewellery the braid is used differently in that it is stacked in multiple layers and stitched so that the edge of the soutache is on view rather than the traditional use of lying flat against another surface and sewn into curved shapes.

There are many types of Soutache braids coming onto the market, however the range that we stock was designed by a textile Jewellery artist for textile jewellery so much attention has been given to consistency of width thickness and drape, both the rayon and polyester braid can be used together successfully.

The polyester braid is entirely a synthetic fibre, it takes colour beautifully which means this is the product to choose for the bright colours, the sheen is slightly duller than that of the Rayon braid.

Rayon is a semi-natural fibre (re-processed cotton) Rayon has more sheen and the colours available are a more muted palette.
