These kind of metallic trims are used on traditional Greek embroideries to finish the ends of runners or sew to the entire perimeter of an embroidery. They have a lovely metallic sheen that pairs well with folk embroideries. The trims pictured here are made in a family factory in Thessaloniki on machinery that dates back to the 1940s.


Oval Passmenterie is a unique trim made from burgundy and metallic gold threads. Its striking beauty will complement bold embroideries. Available in 1" and 1-1/2" widths.
