'Brillant-Cordonnet'
Old-Time Metallic Cording
A Blümchen Exclusive from Germany
Leonisches Gold ~ Real Silver Plated
We are delighted to offer this real silver and gold
metallic cording! Made in Germany just for us,
the two-ply cording is made from finest strands
of "Lahn," or flattened plated copper wire, that
are twisted through a cotton thread center.
Created with a bumpy texture for extra sparkle,
this glittery metallic cording is 1/16" wide.
Do note that the gold will darken with age, while
the silver plated Lahn is "guaranteed to tarnish."
20 meters per spool of 1 mm wide cording

'Plattlitze' Metallic Ribbon
Made in Germany especially for Blümchen
• Leonisches Gold ~ Genuine Silver Lahn
This luxurious, Victorian-style ribbon is made from real metallic threads! Manufactured on an antique machine, this old-style ribbon has a tight, meshed weave which can be fanned out to create airy effects when making bows.
These metallic ribbons will darken with age to an antiqued look, so if you want to keep the Plattlitze ribbon shiny bright when not in use, just keep the spool covered in plastic wrap or an airtight plastic bag. Ours from Germany.
Each spool   $20.95
