Tapes, Trims, & Webbings
Decorative and functional, narrow wares provide the foundation or finish for many restoration projects. Heavy linen webbings are the first layer of support in historic upholstery, interlaced together and tacked to the wooden frame. Tapes become beautiful and functional ties, casings, and straps. Trims woven in elegant designs neatly finish seams and create strong visual lines.
Handwoven webbing creates the base onto which the rest of the upholstery will be added on this 18th century arm chair.
