braids and trimming

ribbons and tapes

This page is under construction as previous off-website sites have been closed down. Currently I am working on putting photographs of the braid and trimmings still in stock onto pages in this gallery. There are still many items queuing to be photographed.

The darker lines on the grid behind each braid are1cm: scales vary.

For details contact Create the Mood by email, sending a copy picture of the braid in which you are interested.
(All prices and details were on fotopic which shut down without notice so will need to be recalculated.)

I have loads of different styles and widths and will upload more photographs every few days. Most braids, (also known historically as 'lace'), are antique or vintage and some are pre-used: any flaws will be notified. They are of limited quantity, and when sold out cannot be repeated. There is no wholesale.

I have braids and ribbons in most other colours. But my life is not long enough to photograph every single reel.

Please email with a photograph of the braid you require, the length and, if it is for a costume, which historical period.
No sales under 1 metre or parts of a metre, unless only a small length remains.
Prices are plus postage, at PO rates. Sale to UK only.
