Trims and accessories fulfill a number of roles in garment creation: they enhance the look or functionality of garments, increasing hanger-appeal; individualize a garment or product; create product differentiation, or ensure the item aligns with a fashion trend or theme. High-quality trims can make an inexpensive item look top-class.
Bindings – bias cut and knitted – are used to finish a garment on areas like necklines, armholes, and openings. They must be flexible and easy to use to conform to contours
Edgings – are used to outline shapes, accentuate lines or compartmentalize color blocks. They are applied to hems, tucks, ruffles, or necklines. Piping, lace, ribbons, fringes, and tapes fit into this category
Flat Trims – these are applied to a garment for ornamental purposes, to change its aesthetic appearance, cover seams, or create textural or visual appeal. Braids, twill tapes, ribbons, embroidery, and appliques belong in this category
Other Trims – buttons, metal trims, nail heads, rhinestones, buckles, and rivets belong in this group and are generally used on heavy-duty fabrics like denim
It’s very important to ensure the appropriate trim selection is made to achieve these results, and that’s where La Fabrica steps in. Their e-catalogue carries a vast range of over a hundred different trims and accessories from which to choose, including:
