This Braid is from Isler from Switzerland . Already vintage when i find it 1990 at Kates Millinery from the sample archives probably from the mid sixties at least.
2 inch wide, in wheat .
The weaving is in diagonal like the hat body ,on one side guided and baste with a double coton thread like on horsehair braid too.
Theses braids have been made and design for hand made sewing on shapes and buckram…
They too wide too be sewn on the machine….on my own expertise i ‘ve tried it all ready…
I ‘ll use for trimming …and like horsehair the flexibilities of the weave is great.
