straight-edged metallic braids

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: each photograph varies in scale.

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

gold braids - see more metallic trims under ribbons


military-style braid - more metallic trims under ribbons

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 in most other colours. But my life is not long enough to photograph every single reel.
