Brisbane Curtain Fabric for Curtain Accessories
Trimmings, or ‘passementerie’ to give the upmarket name, consist of cords, fringing, braids, and tiebacks of which there is an enormous variety including ribbons, beads, and pom-poms. Andersons have a section of their decorator fabric library devoted to the various collections from these manufacturers.
These items, against expectations, considering the minimalist vogue in interior decoration, have enjoyed renewed interest, a small rebellion against unrelieved plainness in style. They appear as fringing and cord trim on blinds and pelmets as well as on curtains and for cord and tassel tiebacks of sumptuous detail which are a great value. Cord and tassel tiebacks and other passementerie options in tiebacks, such as rope tiebacks and plaited tiebacks have largely (but not entirely) supplanted the custom made bonded curtains and padded tiebacks in the curtain fabric.
