Fine Japanese Metallic Tapes



These beautiful fine Japanese metallic tapes are another favourite new acquisition. They are coated in a very fine layer of real metal and thus have a delicious, sparkling sheen. They are soft, strong and fine (1.5mm), and they stitch effectively directly through the fabric using a no. 24 chenille needle. They can therefore be used to work many surface embroidery stitches, giving them a delicate twinkling quality.

Use them with a laying tool such as a mellor or aficot to encourage them to sit flat and slide smoothly through the fabric. They can also be used for pleating in the same manner as rolled metal ‘plate’ but are much much softer and therefore easier to handle and can be plunged through the fabric to finish at ends. I have used them in the feathers of the Peacock.

The tapes come in 25m lengths, and in a colour choice of Turquoise or Bronze.
