WHAT IS SOUTACHE?
SOUTACHE EMBROIDERY is a aged embroidery technique, which was initially used for making decorative elements sewn on clothes. Name comes from french ‘soutache’, which means braid used to decorate cut fabric.
Today, artists and designers are using this method in making jewelry, belts and handbags. Soutache braids can be connected with gemstones, minerals, silver, crystals, glass and different beads. Using this method, amazing accessories can be made which are full of glamour and color, and has a regal royal presence.
