SOUTACHE

A soutache is narrow flat decorative braid , a type of galloon, used in the trimming of drapery or clothing. In clothing soutache is used to conceal a seam.

Many different stitches are used : backstitches, bar tack , blanket , blind stitch , buttonhole , Catch stitch, chain stitch , cross stitch , hemstitch , overlock , pad stitch running ....

 

I use the tecnique of Soutache to create some bijoux and needlework accessoires using only natural materials and semi precious stones .
