The first book on how to create your own, contemporary handwoven passementerie (ornamental fringe, tassels, braid, piping, and more) using widely available materials.
In this hands-on introduction to one of the rarest of textile crafts, artist and designer Elizabeth Ashdown combines her mastery of the centuries-old skills with a vibrant, contemporary aesthetic. Learn centuries-old methods and how to apply them to make your own contemporary ornamental trimmings.
Discover 11 guided projects for home and wardrobe, ranging from elegant Chanel-style jacket fringe to bold, tasselled lampshade fringe. This book demonstrates techniques that transform your existing clothing and home decor items into handcrafted masterpieces that make a bold statement.
For beginner and intermediate / advanced weavers; requires only a simple rigid heddle loom or frame loom, like those commonly sold by craft retailers. Any of the projects can also be woven on a different type of loom such as an Inkle loom and shaft loom.
Additional audiences include fashion and clothing-focus crafters, textile artists, embroiderers, knitters and spinners.
